Oklahoman Publisher Chris Reen takes over as president of SNPA 9/15/16

By Jane Nicholes, SNPA Correspondent

Strong leadership is the key to the future of what incoming SNPA President Chris Reen describes as local media companies, of which newspapers are one component.

"I tell people all the time, this is a business that is not for the faint of heart. It is in constant disruption," said Reen, president and publisher of The Oklahoman Media Co. "Personally, I feel a sense of responsibility to my employees, to my company, to the industry, to my family, to be on the front lines of figuring out where this thing is going.

"I think our industry needs strong leadership and I hope I can provide some of it for some people, which is why I stay in this business. I believe in it and I believe in its future."
