Many Taylorville residents know Doug Quick for his time in radio and television. But could you imagine, Doug Quick, the pharmacist?
Quick, the co-anchor and weather anchor at Fox Illinois WCCU in Champaign, took home the Silver Dome Award for being the best TV anchor in a medium market from the Illinois Broadcasters’ Association at the Silver Dome Awards Gala on June 8th at the Abraham Lincoln Museum.
Quick says he’s proud to be recognized among his peers. He says the airwaves belong to everyone, and so he tries to serve everyone.
Although Quick is known for his many years in broadcasting, there was a time that he want to go into pharmaceuticals.
Quick began his broadcasting career when John Ulz hired him to work at WTIM in the 1970’s. Quick says he loves his hometown of Taylorville, and he had many life-changing events happen here, eventually leading him to where he is today.
