The McKnight’s brand may be familiar to many in the field today. That’s somewhat ironic, as the man behind it never expected to be a publisher. Boiled down, the late Bill McKnight was a gregarious, smart salesman with a keen eye for opportunity.
I last talked with our magazine’s founder, Bill McKnight, about six years ago. Despite having sold the magazine many years ago, he was typically gracious and helpful for an article I was writing. Bill died this month at age 83.
