Radio and TV News Reporter. He was an award winning broadcaster with seven Emmy Awards for his radio and television commentary and reporting, whose booming delivery earned him the nickname "The Voice". As a fledging UPI reporter, he was expelled from Germany in 1941 by the Nazi government. He dined with the likes of Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt. He performed briefly in a Las Vegas act with Phil Harris and once contemplated doing a sitcom. At the time of his death he was serving on the board of Eisenhower Medical Center and as chairman of the board of the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences in his beloved Rancho Mirage where he lived for the last 30 years.
