A Voice of His Time is the long past due biography of Charles H. Crutchfield, a man hailed as "the pioneer of commercial broadcasting." Son of a cotton broker, born in Hope, Arkansas and educated in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Crutchfield quickly rose to prominence in the rapidly growing industry of radio and television. His story is told by former reporter Jerry Shinn, no stranger to the important figures who shaped Charlotte, North Carolina, city of the New South. Author Bio: Jerry Shinn grew up in South Carolina, graduated with Honors in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is a former associate editor, editorial page editor and award-winning columnist for the Charlotte Observer. He now lives and writes fiction, poetry, history, biography, commentary and music in the North Carolina mountains.
