In [49] H. Widom derived formulae expressing correlation functions of orthogonal and symplectic ensembles of random matrices in terms of orthogonal polynomials. We obtain similar results for discrete ensembles with rational discrete logarithmic derivative, and compute explicitly correlation kernels associated to the classical Meixner and Charlier orthogonal polynomials.
