Jan Stratton

Jan joined KSWO in 1980 as Public Affairs Director. She moved to the News Department in 1981 first as reporter, then anchor and subsequently, as News Director.  She remained as News Director until July 2006 when she stepped back so she could spend more time with her family.  Her co-anchor and colleague David Bradley assumed the position.  During her 25 years in the job, the News Department won dozens of awards for Best Newscast, Best Public Issues Reporting, Best General Reporting and Best Photography from the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters, the Associated Press and United Press International.  Many of the reporters and anchors you see around the country had their start at 7 News.  Jan was honored in March by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters when she was inducted into the Hall of Fame.  She says it's an honor she never expected but one she cherishes and is a highlight of her career.

Jan grew up in New Jersey but has lived in Lawton for more than 34 years. She is married to Comanche County Associate District Judge C. William Stratton. They are parents to six--that's right, six--children and now are proud grandparents.  Jan lists golf, travel, community theater and the New York Times crossword puzzle as hobbies.
