Frederick William “Fred” Foy. Radio historian Jim Harmon called Foy “perhaps the greatest announcer-narrator in the history of radio drama.”

After a tour of duty in WWII, Foy worked in Detroit, Michigan, at WXYZ, where The Lone Ranger radio show originated in 1933. He took over in 1948 and continued until the series ended in 1954. In 1955, he reprised his “Return with us now…” opening narration for TV’s syndicated run of The Lone Ranger.
