The Media Relations section of Public Affairs produces news releases on newsworthy Air Force missions, programs and activities. We work with the news media to provide interviews, coordinate visits and to respond to queries. We seek every opportunity to tell the Air Force story by reaching the public through local, regional and national news media organizations.

Media interest is high at Tinker Air Force Base. There are many media outlets who receive information on Tinker activities and events.   Our goal is to increase public awareness and understanding of Tinker AFB's mission.  

In the event of a base disturbance or other major event, the 72nd Air Base Wing, Public Affairs Office staff will activate a Straight Talk Center, which provides accurate information and updates regarding the situation.  For more information during actual real-world or exercise situations, call the Straight Talk Center at (405) 734-1900 for a recorded announcement.
