Pageant seeks new narrator
Skip Conover, the voice behind the annual Pageant of the Masters, has retired from his position as narrator. Conover began his tenure in 1994, replacing Thurl Ravenscroft — the voice of Kellogg's Tony the Tiger. Conover never missed a performance, according to a news release. He narrated 60 nights for 17 seasons and his 1,000 pageant narrations were always live.
