Where did the “Town Cryer” slogan come from?

We are often asked about the “Town Cryer” slogan.  The answer comes from 1962 when Lew Cryer joined the staff of a radio station in San Luis Obispo, California.  He became the local “Town Cryer” as a disc jockey for KVEC Radio station….and the slogan stuck!
