Abstract:

Radio station owner and state representative Johnny W. Shaw was born on January 5, 1942 in Laconia, Tennessee. He attended the American Baptist Theological Seminary in Nashville, Tennessee. In the 1960s, Shaw was the spokesman of a local gospel group’s Sunday morning radio program on WBOL-AM in Bolivar, Tennessee, where he was also the first African American staff announcer. He was later promoted to program director, assistant manager, and general manager of WBOL. Shaw also began preaching at Saint John Missionary Baptist Church in Stanton, Tennessee in 1980, and sang with a group called the Shaw Singers. In 1987, Shaw and his wife, Opal, founded the Shaw Broadcasting Company, LLC and purchased WBOL. Their second station, WOJG-FM, began broadcasting in 1992. In 2000, Shaw was elected to the Tennessee House of Representatives, and won re-election in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012.
