NAB to honor Quincy Newspapers' Oakley
The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) will honor Quincy Newspapers president and CEO Thomas Oakley with the Chuck E. Sherman Television Leadership Award at the NAB Small Market Television Exchange in Austin, TX, on Sept. 27.
Oakley is the fourth generation of his family to be actively involved in the ownership and operation of Quincy Newspapers. In 1969, he was named CEO. At that time, QNI operated three properties: WGEM-TV, WGEM Radio and “The Herald-Whig.” Under his leadership, the company grew and now owns and operates 12 TV stations, two radio stations, two newspapers and a video production company.
