A Conversation with Art Gilliam

Businessman and Radio station owner, Art Gilliam talks about his career and the many firsts attributed to him and his accomplishments in broadcasting. In 1977 he launched Gilliam Communications, Inc. and bought the WLOK radio station. In doing so, WLOK became the first African American-owned Memphis radio station and the city's first locally owned station. Gilliam’s WLOK has earned the title of #1 Gospel Station in the nation by Religion & Media Quarterly for several consecutive years; and, in 1997, was recognized by the Tennessee Historical Commission as a Tennessee Historical Landmark.
