Abstract:

Radio station owner Art Gilliam was born on March 6, 1943 in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1963, at age twenty, Gilliam graduated with his B.A. degree in economics from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He then received his M.B.A degree from the University of Michigan in 1967. Gilliam worked for Universal Life Insurance where he remained until 1975. In 1968, he began writing a weekly editorial for The Commercial Appeal and was hired by WMC-TV in Memphis as the weekend news anchor. Gilliam was the first African American to write for The Commercial Appeal and the first African American on-air reporter and anchor on Memphis television, WMC-TV. In 1977, he launched Gilliam Communications, Inc. and bought WLOK radio station, making WLOK the first African American-owned Memphis radio station and the city's first locally-owned station. Gilliam’s WLOK was recognized by the Tennessee Historical Commission as a Tennessee Historical Landmark in 1997.
