Larry Thor

Larry Thor (August 27, 1916 – March 15, 1976) was a radio newscaster and announcer, an actor in film and radio, and a university professor. He "was noted for his distinctive voice ... his rich resonant tones."

Thor's involvement with drama on radio began in Canada. In addition to his work as an announcer (noted above), he began his own company, Peak Radio Ltd., which produced radio dramas. During Thor's time on American network radio, he was an announcer for Green Lama, Rocky Jordan, and Suspense. He was perhaps best known for starring in Broadway Is My Beat, playing Detective Danny Clover. He also was the announcer on the syndicated radio program, The Clyde Beatty Show.
