Caesars Atlantic City is celebrating 30 years in town. Resorts celebrated that milestone last year. Atlantic City Weekly has them both beat. AC Weekly began on this day, 35 years ago, June 19, 1974 as Whoot “The Entertainment Paper for Night Owls.”
A young Stockton College student named Lew Steiner had an idea for an entertainment paper to cover the Atlantic City nightclub (The Whoot Route) and dining scene. With the help and backing of his parents, co-founders Herb and Marcia Steiner, he brought that idea to life. When gambling became a reality in 1978, Whoot was already established as the go-to guide for what was happening in the AC region.
Lew and I knew each other from Ventnor and later as college students at Stockton, where we both worked for the school newspaper, The Argo. I began doing movie reviews for the Whoot in 1975, moved on to the Philadelphia Journal and Philadelphia Bulletin from 1978-80, then returned to my hometown weekly in 1983. I’ve been here ever since.
When you work for a weekly paper you tend to do a bit of everything. As well as all the fun, glamorous stuff like covering shows and interviewing celebrities, my Whoot duties included typing in ad copy on early photographic typesetting machines that had to have the type fonts placed in the machine manually, only four at a time. I helped opaque the page negatives by filling in the flaws by hand with a special type of Sharpie, often late at night. I remember one evening where I went to a show, covering a performance by Ann-Margret, then returned to the office around midnight to help finish the negatives.
