Longtime Lawrence radio executive and personality Hank Booth is set to add to his duties by going to work for the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce.

Booth, a fixture as station manager and host of a morning show at KLWN, will be working with existing chamber staffers.

A formal announcement regarding Booth's chamber responsibilities is expected this morning.

"The chamber's very lucky that he's interested in partnering with us," said Joan Golden, chairwoman of the chamber's board of directors. "That's a very positive thing. Anytime he's out there talking on behalf of the chamber - whether it's for Leadership Lawrence, membership or economic development - that benefits us all."

Golden said the chamber work would be scheduled around Booth's existing work duties, which include serving as play-by-play voice for Lawrence High School football and as public-address announcer for Kansas University football and basketball.

Booth's daughter, Becca Booth, already works at the chamber as director of membership development.

Did they say he is volunteering? Of course not. Even Hank doesn't have enough money to live on either in Lawrence. Talk about patronage jobs. Father and daughter. Before she was with the school district. Any does anyone wonder now why there property taxes are so high? How much will the city commission slip to the Chamber to fund this new job of Hank's? Hank should be ashamed of taking pay for the job. He really should!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pulling out all the stops because the Chamber needs a lot of help. Unfortunately, the only one the Chamber helps, is itself!
