THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first television broadcast?
Where would all those couch
potatoes be without televised sports and where would the housewives be without
their soap operas? Well, we can all thank John Logie Baird for this unique
In 1926, John Logie Baird transmitted the very
first television picture from one room to another. By 1927, he used telephone
wires to successfully send a moving image from London to Glasgow and in 1928, he
made the first trans-Atlantic television broadcast.
After this innovative concept television as we know
it today was not far behind. On May 2, 1941, 10 stations were issued a
commercial television license by the FCC. The first television station begin
commercial broadcasting on July 1, 1941 under the call letters WNBT. WNBT has
served Connecticut, New Jersey and New York and has changed their call letters
over the years resigning on what we know today as WNBC.
WNBT is also attributed to the first sports
broadcast, the first commercial, the first newscast, and the first local news
broadcast in color.
With all these first we will have to way that WNBC
is the number one station in the nation which has been seen throughout history.
