Oklahoma Watch

Oklahoma Watch is an investigative news site that focuses on data-driven reporting about key topics in the state, including addiction, immigration, criminal justice and education. The site launched in 2010 and produced coverage that helped bring about prison reform in Oklahoma. After a hiatus in 2012, the site relaunched in 2013 with a new editor, David Fritze, who had been a senior editor at The Arizona Republic. The site is funded by several foundations that are represented on its board of directors and the operation is housed at the University of Oklahoma.
