On the Scene: Adventures of a Newspaper Editor
Thursday, May 6, 2021
Editor of the Coastal Observer since the paper's founding in 1982, Charles Swenson has collected a wealth of newsworthy tales along the Waccamaw Neck -- serious, sad, silly and strange. In today's multi-media, transnational age with 24/7 streaming news, he can speak to how a local newspaper provides straightforward, on-the-scene articles and creates community connections. Swenson serves on the Executive Committee of the S.C. Press Association and the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation.
