Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frank Gallop (June 20, 1900, Boston, Massachusetts - May 5, 1988, New York City) was an American radio and television personality. Frank Gallop went into broadcasting by chance. Born and raised in Boston's Back Bay and a graduate of Dorchester High School, he was working for an investment firm in 1934 when a client convinced him to become the replacement for his current announcer. Gallop's new-found job lasted only a short time, as the client decided to re-hire the announcer he had grown tired of. Gallop made the decision to quit the investment banking business based on the economic conditions of the time; there appeared to be more investment consultants than clients in need of their services. The experience was enough to earn Gallop a spot at WEEI. He worked for the station for ten months before moving to New York with his friend Ed Herlihy to do network announcing.show more
