Bud Collyer (June 18, 1908 – September 8, 1969) was an American radio actor/announcer

Clayton 'Bud' Collyer was one of America's first major television game show stars. He is best remembered for his work as host of TV's Beat The Clock and the first host of the TV game show To Tell the Truth, but he was also famous in the roles of Clark Kent and Superman on radio and in animated shorts. Among others, his radio roles on Terry and the Pirates (Pat Ryan), Renfrew of the Mounted (the title role), and Abie's Irish Rose (the title role, again), not to mention announcing for a number of radio soap operas—including The Guiding Light and The Goldbergs, which was actually a serial comedy with dramatic overtones.
