With Frank Lovejoy starring as reporter Randy Stone of the Chicago Star, Nightbeat is more than a newspaperman-adventure series. Much like Broadway is my Beat, this series is more about the people involved than the actual crimes or misadventures. Character development is the strong point here, along with the weekly analysis of the human condition.
Nighbeat aired from 1950 through 1952.
