WSYR's E. R. Vadeboncoeur (1939)|
With 570 WSYR celebrating its 80th year on the air this past week, we snooped around for a picture from "way back when." E. R. Vadeboncoeur, the successful Herald-Journal newspaper editor, switched from print to join the WSYR news staff as a commentator on August 24, 1939. In the years that followed, Vadeboncoeur would go on to become a foreign war correspondent during World War II.
