In this episode, we're talking Lewis Grizzard by two people who knew him well – Jim Minter and David Boyd Sr.
Jim Minter was managing editor of the Atlanta Constitution and oversaw the consolidation of the Journal and Constitution newsrooms in 1982, and in 1986 was named senior editor of the Journal and Constitution and Vice President of Cox Newspapers.
Minter talks about discovering Lewis, bringing him to Atlanta and watching his career take off.
Joining Jim is Coweta’s very own David Boyd Sr. A political cartoonist first at the Newnan Times-Herald, Boyd also illustrated several of Lewis’s books and calendars. Friends and golfing buddies, they traveled twice to Scotland to golf at St. Andrews.
