Bond began working on radio at WHAS in Louisville, Kentucky, and joined NBC in 1928.
For 20 years in the 1930s and 1940s, he was the announcer for several radio soap operas and other shows, including the advertising voice for a sponsor's product called Bab-O. He was also a sports announcer for NBC radio in the 1930s, calling college football games as well as the 1934 Major League Baseball All-Star Game and 1934 World Series. He also served as radio consultant for Thomas E. Dewey during Dewey's 1948 campaign for president.
For almost 30 years, Bond was the spokesman for Cities Service petroleum company, "the longest sponsor-announcer association in the history of radio."
Bond retired from broadcasting in 1953 "to go into the building business in the Virgin Islands."
