Fulton Lewis, Jr.

Fulton Lewis, Jr. was the chief news commentator for many years for the Mutual Broadcasting System. The former newspaper columnist’s radio career took off in 1937 when he was selected to fill-in for a vacationing announcer. His reporting so impressed William Dolph, the head of the Mutual network, that he was asked to do a series of radio commentaries (or “talks” as they were called at that time). Within two months he was heard coast-to-coast over MBS with his “Top of the News from Washington” which became a 7 P.M. tradition for many years.

Lewis continued to work well into the 1970’s, and died in 1977 at the age of 74.
