I think this may be Cort Stanton, early WEWS announcer. Does anybody know for sure?

After taking a good look at this picture, I had come to think it might be him. I remember he had curly light brown hair?

I wouldnt know if it was him or not, but no one could do a station ID like he did..He had a great voice..
“This is Channel 5, First In Cleveland, Your Scripps-Howard Television Station W-E-W-S”
Never knew his name until I started writing my blog..

Yep, that’s Cort. I knew him from WEWS-FM, before WEWS-TV was “born.” Our radio workshop of the Cleveland College (downtown) of Western Reserve Univ. did a half hour weekly drama show “Cleveland College Presents.” Cort was the station announcer and I was always the show’s announcer/narrator.

ADDENDUM: Cort’s voice, I thought, was the epitome of a most pleasurable radio voice, low pitched with resounding resonances, a golden, God given voice. I didn’t aspire to have the same voice, only similar.

I worked two summers at WEWS as a vacation relief booth announcer.(1966-67) and I can verify that the man in the picture is indeed Court (short for Courtland) Stanton. He worked at the station from 1948 to 1973.
