Today In History: We met the press

Today in 1947, NBC aired the premiere episode of Meet The Press with host Martha Rountree.

Press started as a radio program, but quickly graduated to the new medium of television. The first guest was James Farley, who had served as Post Master General and was a two-time campaign manager for Franklin Roosevelt. To date, Rountree remains the only woman to have hosted the program.

Elsewhere on November 6ths past? The creator of basketball, Dr. James Naismith, was born and so was Emma Stone. What a duo!
