Ralph Livingstone Edwards (June 13, 1913 – November 16, 2005) was an American radio and television host and television producer.

Born in Merino, Colorado, Edwards began his career as a radio announcer while still at Oakland High School in California, landing a part time job at KROW-AM. After graduating in 1931, he worked his way through college at the University of California, Berkeley, earning a B.A. in English in 1935.While there, he worked at every job from janitor to producer at Oakland's KTAB. Failing to get a job as a high school teacher, he worked at KFRC and then hitchhiked across the country to New York, where, he said, "I ate ten-cent meals and slept on park benches," .

After some part time announcing jobs, he got his big break in 1938 with a fulltime job for the Columbia Broadcasting System on WABC (now WCBS-AM), where he worked with two other young announcers who would become broadcasting fixtures - Mel Allen and Andre Baruch.
