What’s Up at KOPR?

It’s a busy back-to-school season at KOPR!

From Longhorn football to the 20th anniversary Texas Book Festival, we are gearing up for a fabulous season! Austin’s collective fall calendar is jam-packed with sporting events, festivals, music and food to enjoy. We’ll be taking part and we hope to see you out and about!

It’s time to put away the beach chairs and the swimsuits, as area students head back to campus. Like you, we have enjoyed seeing all the “first day of school” photos showing up on Facebook and other social media sites. It’ s exciting to mark a change in the season, and hopefully a change in the weather!

With the arrival of fall, we are pleased to welcome two new interns to our team, along with one returning intern. Join us in welcoming Ramiro Zapata, a Mass Communications major at Texas State University, and Valerie Cruz, a PR major at the University of Texas. Also joining us for the fall semester is Paige Carter, who is a PR major at UT, and previously interned at the firm. Especially exciting is our news that Julie Sondecker has joined the team as our new Account Supervisor. Welcome, one and all!

 Mid-October will find us holding forth at the Central Market Cooking Tent during the 20th anniversary Texas Book Festival, October 17 – 18. We hope you’ll stop by to enjoy enlightening discussions and exciting cooking demonstrations from some amazing food-related authors and chefs.

With football season just around the corner, Longhorn Network is getting ready to air the first 2015 UT home game against Rice University on Saturday, Sept. 12. With a new football season also comes an exciting new Texas GameDay set outside of DKR Stadium. The new Texas GameDay set at Gate 25 will have a prime view of the “Texas Stampede” as players and coaches enter the stadium. In addition to a new set and location, Longhorn Network will welcome former NFL star and UT tight end, David Thomas, to the Texas GameDay analyst team alongside Lowell Galindo, Vince Young and Ricky Williams.

Here’s to cooler weather and an action-packed, fun-filled fall!

Kristy, Julie, Paige, Valerie and Ramiro
