Ogle brothers continue Capitol tradition

OKLAHOMA CITY -- We all know the news biz is an Ogle family tradition. However, you may not have known our State Capitol has been a sort of second-home for many of the Ogles.

Broadcasting legend, Jack Ogle, was a Capitol beat reporter for years.

One of his many claims to fame was that he was the only reporter to broadcast live from the Capitol for the impeachment of State Supreme Court Justice, N.B. Johnson.

Matriarch, Ann Ogle, also worked several years at the Capitol for the State Tourism Department.

In a way, Ann was actually following in the footsteps of her mother.

Kathy bowman worked 17 years supervising the page program.

Ann says, "My mother was really the first one to work out there. She was the page supervisor."

Fast forward four decades, Kayne Ogle, Kent Ogle's oldest son, served as a page several years ago.

Kevin, Kent and Kelly were all pages when they were in high school.

Ann says light-heartedly, "I guess you might say we're kind of a political family. I don't intend to ever run for political office. I hope none of us do.

The Ogle brothers were not elected, but appointed for inauguration day duties.

They came together on the south Capitol steps to emcee the inauguration of Oklahoma's first female governor.

Another history-making day for the first-family of Oklahoma newscasters.
