San Antonio Visit
Off to San Antonio to visit with Bob Richter, associate editor of the San Antonio Express News. We had a good visit and Bob said he would get in touch with Charles Kilpatrick, former editor of the Express News and maybe we could all get together. I first knew Charles in the Houston area before he went to San Antonio. His niece married Steve Weaver, who was once a newspaper reporter. Steve went on to law school. Charles was editor of the Express News when it was purchased by Murdoch. Charles said being an editor for Murdoch was a dream job. Only two or three things were compulsory and everything else was up to Charles. Of course, Charles long since retired, and Murdoch sold the Express News to the Hearst Corporation. There have been a lot of changes in thie newspaper world since then.
