Frank Lovejoy is hardboiled newsman Randy Stone, roaming the dark streets of his city to find that special story for the next day's Chicago Star and his Night Beat column. Lovejoy portrays a reporter with a heart as well as a nose for news, with a focus on both the human-interest angle of the story and the crime. Adding to the show's overall excellence was its guest cast, including such top-line radio actors as Joan Banks, Jeff Corey, Ted DeCorsia, Paul Frees, Barbara Fuller, Lou Krugman, Jack Kruschen, Peter Leeds, Shirley Mitchell, Gerald Mohr, Jeannette Nolan, Lurene Tuttle, Martha Wentworth, and many more.
