Luke Walton broke into radio sports in 1931 at WGFB, Evansville, and WBOW, Terre Haute. By 1941 he was in Indianapolis as sportscaster/salesman for WISH, where he did play-by-play baseball coverage of the Indianapolis Indians from 1948-55 and again in 1963. For “away” games in the early days he created his vivid descriptions from an station studio using cryptic teletype messages from distant stadiums. Walton left WISH in 1956 to form his own advertising agency. However he remained a part of the annual Indianapolis 500 radio coverage. His memorable rapid-fire voice from the pit area was part of the network broadcasts for 20 years. Walton died in 1990.
