Juliana Keeping is a reporter covering breaking news, crime, homelessness and other topics in Oklahoma City for The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com.
Previous gigs have stints in the Chicago media at the SouthtownStar, where she won a Peter Lisagor Award for in-depth reporting after exposing corrupt school leaders’ spending practices with their district-issued credit cards. She also helped launch a digital start-up in Michigan which led to a George Polk Awards Program grant for an online journalism project called Viking’s War, in which Michigan National Guard infantrymen corresponded with her online and via video for a year during the war in Afghanistan.
She’s honored to ply her trade on the plains, where she covers the weird and wonderful, the sad and beautiful, online and in print and on Twitter — if that’s how you like the news. Breaking news in Oklahoma City is her daily practice in telling stories of death and survival you won’t find anywhere else.
