Anschutz said he looks forward “to carrying on the legacy of excellence created by the Gaylord and Dickinson families.”

Looking forward, we can promise that the newspaper and its affiliates will continue to elucidate and to entertain, to enlighten and to educate. The opinion pages will continue to extol conservative values. This will remain the largest, best-equipped information provider in Oklahoma. And we will continue to support community causes and help this state grow and prosper.
