|Former ABC News president visits Vidalia|
Former ABC News President Elmer Lower heard all about Southern hospitality while growing up in the North.
"I see it now," Lower said Monday in Vidalia during a rare visit to the Deep South. "The people here are very accommodating. And the food is great."
Lower, who will be 98 next March, spent the Christmas holidays in Vidalia as the guest of Molly Cooper.
Molly's daughter, Eleanor, befriended Lower when she worked as a recreational therapist in Long Island. Molly visited Lower and his family in Vera Beach, Fla., and he promised to spend a few days in Vidalia in return.
While making his first visit, Lower was a bit familiar with Ferriday from one of his former employers, who worked with him at CBS and ABC.
"Howard K. Smith was a gentlemen," Lower said of the Ferriday native who moved to New Orleans with his family as a teen-ager. "I first met Howard at CBS in 1950. Both Howard and his son Jack worked for CBS for several years. Of all the people I've worked with under the Murrow boys (the CBS broadcast journalists most closely associated with Edward R. Murrow during his years at the network), I thought that Howard K. Smith had the best brain. He was outstanding."
