    Prominent news commentator for the Fox Movietone newsreel series who also appeared on radio, and indeed, on some of the very first commercial news programs for television just prior to Pearl Harbor. A deft spoof of him as “Dole Promise” can be seen in She Was an Acrobat’s Daughter (Freleng, 1937), along with another Movietone regular, Lew Lehr.
