DETROIT — It's well beyond a "Hi-Yo Silver" anniversary for "The Lone Ranger."

Wednesday marks the 80th anniversary of show that debuted on Jan. 30, 1933, on what is now Detroit radio station WXYT-AM.

The Detroit Free Press reports that "the Lone Ranger" grew into a national sensation and lasted until 1956. It also became a television series during the 1940s and '50s.

The show's live lead-in introduced its masked cowboy hero and his trusted horse with the line: "A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty 'Hi-Yo Silver!' ... The Lone Ranger!"
