Charles Bohn - 2009

Charles Bohn helped put KSTL radio on the air, then went to KSD-TV as a vacation relief engineer. Later, working at KWK Radio as an engineer, he was able to move to television full time where he became one of the market’s first newsreel cameramen. When KWK-TV went on the air in 1954, Charlie Bohn was given the responsibility of setting up the facilities, and he designed and built the station’s first film processing lab. Working at Channel 4, Bohn literally traveled the world on assignments. He covered every president who held office during his career as a cameraman. He was one of the first people to receive a Silver Service Award from NATAS.
