WNEW-at the start of things

 

Nearly all information used in “No, Ed Wynn Didn’t Do It,” came through internet links. Those listed below are only some of those consulted because sources with certain types of duplicated or uncontested information are not listed.  It’s worth noting that misinformation and misinterpreted information abound through the internet, to which this effort has no doubt contributed.

Boris Karlof is seen here behind a WNEW microphone in 1950.  It’s a photo we had not seen when a story about Karlof’s series of children’s programs on WNEW was posted on this site.  (See below)  The photo source is a Wikipedia history about WBBR, the financial news broadcaster, owned and operated by Bloomberg L.P., the company that bought out WNEW in 1993.
