The guy who does the farm report kind of reminds me of Paul Harvey.

Here is part of Alex Drier’s Wikipedia entry:

“Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Dreier attended Stanford University, graduating in 1939.[2] He then went into journalism, and was covering Berlin for United Press when he joined NBC in 1941. During his year in Berlin he was under surveillance by the Gestapo, and he left the city one day before the Pearl Harbor attack.

“His commentary aired on NBC on Saturdays from 1942 to 1945 and weekdays from 1951 to 1956. Known as Chicago's "Man on the Go," Dreier was the city's top TV anchor during his years on NBC-owned WNBQ-TV, serving as a news reporter and anchor. He also handled news for NBC-TV's Today on the Farm from 1960-61. He was replaced as WNBQ anchor by Floyd Kalber in 1962; he then moved to ABC owned-and-operated WBKB-TV.”
