As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history, the more that fact and legend become intertwined. It's hard to say where the truth really lies.

November 15, 1926

NBC radio network's grand opening.   
Radio network NBC debuts, celebrating its launch with one of the earliest remote musical broadcasts. The debut program featured nationally known bands playing at several different locations.
November 16, 1946
Television Screen Magazine launches. 
The show, one of NBC's first network series, included a collection of features on news, lifestyles, fashion, and other topics. The show ran until 1949. In 1968, CBS revived the TV magazine concept with 60 Minutes, which became one of the country's Top 10 shows in 1977 and stayed in the Top 20 for more than 20 years.


To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".
