Jim Zirin speaks with Patricia Beard.

Roy W. Howard may have been the greatest newspaper owner, editor and journalist of the 20th century. Starting
as an Indiana newsboy, he pulled himself to the top of his profession, when he built the wire service, United Press, into an iconic news organization, and became chairman of the Scripps-Howard newspapers. Howard was the adviser and confidant to presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Eisenhower. His biographer, Patricia Beard, tells Jim the secret of Roy Howard’s amazing success.
