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.
