Our first issue, printed Oct. 15, 1979, by publisher Bill Bleakley, had a circulation of 2,000 copies. Today, Oklahoma Gazette is still owned and run by Bleakley. It is the largest independent, Oklahoma-owned newspaper in the state with a weekly readership of more than 134,000 and a cume readership of 206,000. It’s available (and still free) across the metro.
