WORLD'S FIRST
RADIO BROADCAST

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first Radio Broadcast?

A Canadian engineer, Reginald Fessenden, brought voice to the radio broadcast. Fessenden worked for Thomas Edison in his New Jersey Laboratory and went on to become a professor at the University of Pittsburgh.

Fessenden became convinced that the wireless telegraph that transmitted Morse Code could also carry the human voice. The first broadcast was sent out over the airwaves on December 24, 1906. The broadcast included a woman speaking and singing, a violin solo, a man making a speech, and a reading of the Christmas story from the Bible by Fessenden himself. Fesenden also played “O, Holy Night,” on his violin.
