Frank Lovejoy stars as hardboiled newsman Randy Stone, roaming the dark streets of his city to find that special story for the next day s Chicago Star and his Night Beat column. A superior radio drama, NIGHT BEAT featured outstanding writing and direction. Most important to the success of the show was Lovejoy s portrayal of Stone as a reporter with a heart as well as a nose for news, focusing as much, if not more, on the human-interest angle of the story rather than a crime.
Adding to the show s overall excellence was its guest cast, including such top-line radio actors as Joan Banks, Jeff Corey, Ted deCorsia, Paul Frees, Barbara Fuller, Lou Krugman, Jack Kruschen, Peter Leeds, Shirley Mitchell, Gerald Mohr, Betty Moran, Jeanette Nolan, Lurene Tuttle, Martha Wentworth, and many, many more.
