2014 marked the 90th anniversary since the promise of television was first made to the couch potatoes of the world. To commemorate the occasion we posted this article that celebrated the first thirty years of its existence.

President Truman's 1949 inaugural was the first inauguration to be televised - and that was the year that audiences really began to grow, and advertising fees right along with them.
In 1927 Herbert Hoover was the first U.S. President to appear on T.V.
The first dramatic production appeared on T.V. screens in 1928
In 1931 George VI became the first British King to be broadcast
Early television cameras captured Prime Minister Chamberlain upon his return from Munich in 1939 - the same year that the first major-league baseball game was broadcast

When this article was first read, the purchasing of a "T.V. set" seemed like the nation's "second national pastime" - the urge to own one was spearheaded primarily by sports fans. By 1955 television ad revenue exceeded one billion dollars.
