Television started in 1928 in Schenectady, New York but it was incubated in two laboratories, one in Pittsburgh in George Westinghouse’s Labs and the other in General Electric’s Lab. TV goes through growing pains including World War II. But when GI’s come home, they want their TV. They want to watch Ed Sullivan, Meet the Press, Uncle Miltie, Milton Berle, Joe Friday, Lucy and Desi and Ralph Kramden and even test patterns. TV also reflected society of the time. Blacklisting and Nat King Cole could not get a sponsor. Stroll down Memory Lane and get reacquainted with the 1940s and 1950s TV. The Early Days of TV. The programming looked cheap but it came right into the living room. Watching in front of stores, getting rid of rolling, snow and moving that antenna the right way.

About our presenter: Evan Weiner, recognized globally as an expert in the politics of the sports business, produces a daily podcast on that topic in addition to being a regular on television and radio in both the United States and the United Kingdom, including appearances on BBC Radio, MSNBC and ABC television, and The Guardian newspaper in the U.K. Weiner has also written nine books and speaks in a variety of venues, including cruise ships, colleges, and libraries.
