Art Gilmore is best known for his voice acting, a career that has taken him into the worlds of radio, television, movies, trailers, and commercials. Gilmore grew up in Tacoma, Washington, and went on to graduate from Washington State University in 1931. By 1936, he was working as a staff announcer at Warner Brothers' KFWB, a radio station in Hollywood. He eventually moved up to read the news on CBS' KNX. After serving in the Navy in World War II, Gilmore returned to Hollywood to pursue a singing career. While singing never panned out, Gilmore was a hit as a radio announcer, working on "Amos 'n' Andy" and "Dr. Christian," where he introduced many to Herbert W. Armstrong and Garner Ted Armstrong. In television he worked as an announcer on the comedy series "The Red Skelton Hour," the live musical series "An Evening with Fred Astaire," and the family drama "The Waltons" to name a few. He also made appearances on television on shows like the crime dramas "Adam-12," "Dragnet 1967," and the adventure show "Emergency!." In film, he was the voice of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the biographical drama "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and the radio announcer in Alfred Hitchcock's thriller "Rear Window." After establishing his impressive voice work career, Gilmore was named president of AFTRA, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
