Who is Art Schreiber
Arthur A. Schreiber was eight years old and living on an Ohio farm when he first began listening to the radio. He promised himself that one day the voice coming over the airwaves would be his voice. He kept the promise.
After two years serving in the U.S. Army and earning a college degree, he got his first job with a radio station in East Liverpool, Ohio. He began work as a radio news broadcast reporter. Eventually his career took him to California where he became general manager of KFWB-AM in Los Angeles. For a time, he also ran Westinghouse Radio’s national and international news service operations in Washington, D.C.
During his career in radio broadcast news, Art interviewed such notables as John F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Beatles.
Eventually his radio broadcast career took him to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he was general manager for KOB-AM and KOB-FM, two of the state’s major broadcast radio stations, owned at the time by Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc.
He maintained an active role in the Albuquerque community and became a leader in numerous civic organizations, a candidate for mayor, and a dedicated member of the National Federation of the Blind.
