1941 WLS Family Album:
Julian Bentley and Ervin Lewis
photographed by Fons Ianelli
note: As a broadcast journalist, these are my favorite Ianelli WLS
photos. Great juxtaposition of man and microphone and wire machine. I can still
recall Bentley's authoritative delivery. Wish I could find some surviving audio.
|What with the
presidential election and the war, news has been of greater interest to WLS listeners
this year than ever before. They showed their interest when Julian Bentley edited
a series of war maps and offered them for $.10. Thirty thousand listeners wrote
in for the War Maps.
Bentley, who already reads and speaks several languages including French and Italian,
has now started studying Portugese.
from all over the world comes into the WLS news room via two fast teletypwriters
which Associate News Editor Ervin Lewis was looking over when he looked up for
Lewis was a classmate of Bentley at Knox College in Galesburg, but finished his
education at the University of Oklahoma School of Journalism.
