About Us

Welcome to Exploring Energy, the premier radio show dedicated to covering the energy industry in Oklahoma and beyond. Since 2012, our hosts Shawn Wilson and Butch Black have been bringing you the latest news and insights on all aspects of energy, from oil & gas to wind, solar, coal, nuclear and geothermal.

With over 30 years of radio experience, Shawn has a passion for keeping his listeners informed and engaged. He brings a unique perspective to the show, having worked in the oil and gas industry for 15 years before transitioning to radio.

At Exploring Energy, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver actual and factual breaking energy news to our listeners. Our show airs weekdays from 8:05-9am on 96.5 KECO in Elk City, Oklahoma, and is available online at www.exploringenergy.net. You can also follow us on Facebook to get show information and interact with the hosts.

Our guests are the heart and soul of our show. We’ve had the privilege of interviewing some of the most influential figures in the energy industry, from outspoken oilman T. Boone Pickens to the grandfather of deep gas drilling, Robert Hefner III. We’ve also had the opportunity to talk with Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner Dana Murphy, Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, United States Senator James Lankford, and Professor Paul Michael Wihbey.

But our bread-and-butter guests are the hardworking men and women who work in the energy industry in Oklahoma, Southwestern Kansas, and the Eastern Texas Panhandle. We appreciate their dedication to their craft, and we strive to provide them with the information they need to succeed.

So if you’re looking for a radio show that covers the energy industry like no other, look no further than Exploring Energy. Tune in weekdays at 8:05am on 96.5 KECO, or visit us online at www.exploringenergy.net. Thank you for listening!
