The August edition of “The Living Room with Gerry Bonds” radio program offers discussions on how Oklahoma is recovering after the May tornadoes, the tornadoes’ effect on the state’s business and tourism, the resilience of Oklahomans and the assets of the state.

Guests include President and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce Roy Williams, New York Times Editor and Oklahoma native Nicole Hill, and “Oklahoma Today” editor Steffie Corcoran, along with managing editor, Nathan Gunter.

Williams talks about the Chamber’s Back to Business Initiative designed to aid the hundreds of businesses affected by the Moore tornado and what Oklahoma’s national image is in the aftermath of the storms, according to a news release.

Hill shares her insights into the grit and heart that define Oklahoma character as reflected in her May 29, 2013 editorial in the Oklahoma Gazette.

Corcoran and Gunter parley the beauty and diversity of Oklahoma as expressed in their recent Oklahoma Today article, “The Bucket List: 26 Essential Things to See and Do in Oklahoma.”
