WASHINGTON — Paul Harvey, the radio personality with the baritone voice who entertained America for generations, enjoyed a 20 year friendship with FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, the Washington Post reported.

The paper reported that Harvey, who died last February at 90, often submitted “advance copies of his radio script for comment and approval.”

“Harvey wrote Hoover and his deputies regularly. Hoover, in turn, helped Harvey with research, suggested changes in scripts and showered the broadcaster with effusive praise,” the paper reported.
