He was at HDH circa 1968 or so.  If memory serves he replaced Fred B Cole when HDH was trying to get a younger voice.

I believe you are right about him being at WHDH... When I was at Grahm
Junior College in the early seventies, someone had done an interview
with Runyon... I have it on a reel to reel... Somewhere...
