By 1966 Anderson felt like he'd gone as far as he could with Ghoulardi and Cleveland TV, and, with his former comedy partner Tim Conway enjoying success in Hollywood, Anderson relocated to UsefulNotes/LosAngeles. A few months later, ''Shock Theater'' ended and the Ghoulardi name was retired. While he got some small on-camera parts as an actor, and briefly revived his comedy partnership with Conway, Anderson really made a name for himself as a voiceover announcer. His big break came when he was hired as the announcer for ''Series/TheCarolBurnettShow'' in 1974. Not long after, Creator/{{ABC}} hired him as its main imaging voice, a job he held for nearly two decades, voicing the network's promos and doing announcements for shows like shows like ''Series/{{Roots|1977}}'', ''Series/BreakTheBank1976'' (replacing Johnny Jacobs for the final week or so of the ABC run and continuing into the syndicated run), [[Series/TheLoveBoat "The Loooooove Boat"]], and both ''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos'' and ''Series/AmericasFunniestPeople''. He also did voiceovers for other assorted projects, including early commercials for the UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem.
