About Us

The Lost Ogle is Oklahoma City’s most popular and revered digital media publication and social media influencer — at least that’s what we tell people when we ask for money.

Founded in 2007, the website is famous for its original, offbeat and irreverent coverage of Oklahoma news, media, politics, sports, music, pop culture and events. Featuring contributions from a diverse mix of local writers, weirdos and nitwits, the website receives about 40,000 to 50,000 user visits each week, and a social media reach that goes into the hundreds of thousands.

Here’s a little bit about the people who write most of our content:

Muckraker. Showrunner. Smartass. 

Patrick Riley is co-founder, owner and publisher of The Lost Ogle. His duties include writing, editing, and poorly managing all site operations. 

In his previous life, Patrick worked in the Marketing/Communications field. He holds a Bachelors degree in English/Creative Writing from the University of Central Oklahoma and got a huge kick out of being named Distinguished Alumni by Oklahoma City Community College, where he earned a very important Associate of Arts degree.

When not busy with his family, Patrick likes to complain about OU football, Thunder basketball and Cubs baseball.
