FAVORITE PICTURE THAT COVERS RADIO AND
This old photo shows the the
Charleston Daily News office in the
1940's. Lee Lynch is on the far
right, Claude Rardin is to his right,
and the other employees, left to right
are Roger Sullivan (Pat), B. Carpenter
and H. Huber. The office was
located at 5th and Madison (south side).
The Rardin family is a very old family
in Coles County. Claude is the 3rd
generation Rardin. John Rardin
would take over as publisher later.
Lee Lynch was a reporter for the
Charleston Courier, started radio
news for WDZ, left the Courier
and then worked for the Daily News.
