Radio and Television Announcer. He was best known for his introduction to "The Lone Ranger" radio and television series (1948 to 1957). Following high school graduation, he began his career with the Detroit-based WMBC Radio in 1940, and served with the Special Services Unit of the Armed Forces Radio in Egypt during World War II, where he worked with such personalities as Nelson Eddy and Jack Benny. Following his return home Foy resumed his radio career in Detroit, and in 1948 was chosen to narrate the "The Lone Ranger" radio (later TV) broadcasts; his delivery of such memorable lines as "Hi-Yo, Silver!", among others will forever be etched in radio and TV history. During the 1960s, Foy became a principle announcer on ABC's staff for TV programs, and worked on the shows "The Challenge of the Yukon", "The Les Crane Show", "The Green Hornet" and "The Dick Cavett Show". He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2000. He died from natural causes. (bio by: C.S.)
