Favorite Old Photo: 101 E Main, Campbellsville, KY

2014-02-22 - 201 E Main Street, Campbellsville - Photo from the collection of Larry Smith. Communications in our history: The home of The Big Dawg, 99.9 FM, Shoreline Communications in Campbellsville, KY, has communications in it's history. This favorite old photo of mine, of the building in 1901, when it housed the old Enquirer newspaper. It's a reminder of the rich heritage in print journalism in Taylor County has - and of the heydays when Campbellsville was the focal point for printed news for several counties, when Jimmy Cravens created and so successfully ran the old Central Kentucky News. I love stories of all those old battling newsmen, like Cravens and Fred Burkhardt at Liberty, George Trotter in Lebanon, Andrew Norfleet, in Russell Springs, and Pete Walker and Ralph Roy Waggener (he's still at it!) in Columbia, who shaped and guided their communities and weren't afraid of the devil himself. They remind me of where hyperlocal radio is trying to be today. - Larry Smith, Operations Manager, Shoreline Communications
