Altus radio personality Oklahoma's poet laureate
January 14, 2011 05:16 EST
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state of Oklahoma has a new poet laureate.
The Oklahoma Humanities Council says before leaving office, former Gov. Brad Henry appointed author, poet, and radio broadcaster Eddie D. Wilcoxen as Poet Laureate for the State of Oklahoma for 2011 through 2012.
Wilcoxen is a career radio broadcaster with a popular morning show on KWHW in Altus. He has written seven volumes of poetry and one non-fiction work. His "Faith, Hope and Poetry," is scheduled to be released next month.
Wilcoxen also is recognized for landscape design, and his home gardens were featured in Oklahoma Gardener magazine.
Humanities Council Executive Director Ann Thompson says the Oklahoma Legislature designated the honorary position to engage citizens with poetry, a tradition that was established decades ago.
