The Herald-Dispatch

Floyd S. Chapman, mayor of Huntington for a number of terms, became reporter and city editor for the Advertiser shortly after Col. Long acquired it in the early 1900s. He resigned to take charge of the news department of the Herald. In 1904 he launched a new newspaper called the Huntington Dispatch.
