Kerry, Guy. Guy Kerry was created by Frederick C. Davis (Donald O’Keefe Adams, Bill Brent, Duke Buckland, Carter Cole, Dennis Dayle, Murray Gifford, Cyrus Hatch, Mark Hazzard, Jingling Kid, Paul Kirk, Show-Me McGee, Moon Man, Operator #5, Radigan, Ravenwood, Secrets, Inc., Peter Trapp II, Peter van Dyk) and appeared in nine stories in Dime Detective from 1937 to 1950, beginning with “Murder Made Easy” (Dime Detective, May 1937).

Guy Kerry works for the Universal Broadcasting Company and is “known to millions of radio listeners as Keyhole Kerry, the most galvanic flash-news reporter ever to pervade the ether.” He works out of Studio X and, in his memorable machine-gun delivery, breaks news and solves criminal cases on the air, despite the pleas of copy-girl Eve Vane and the anger of Police Commissioner Endicott, who views Kerry as an “unbearable gadfly.” Kerry is a “prematurely white-headed young man.”
