Nelson Case

Nelson Case (February 3, 1910 – March 23, 1976) was an American radio and television announcer.

Case was the son of Walter and Ethel Case. His father was a newspaperman, and his mother was a driving force in the Long Beach Community Players. He attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School and first worked as an announcer on the school's radio station. One of his early ventures into entertainment came when "as a youngster in Long Beach, he sang and played the uke for a band called the Sunset Symphonic Six."

He was a graduate of the College of William & Mary, in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he met his future wife.

Although Case was best known for being an announcer on popular radio and television programs (in 1953, he was "on radio 20 times a week, on TV three"), a 1941 newspaper article noted that he "covered everything from news and special events to sports." His assignments included "Miss America pageants ... Davis Cup tennis matches and presidential inaugurations." One of his more unusual assignments came February 6, 1936, when he described a simulated air attack on New York City. With United States Army planes in the roles of bombers and defenders, Case flew in a plane to "describe the combat from the air. He [was] attached to the 'defense' squadron ..." Provided by Wikipedia
