  • First Presidential Speech On TV

    Happy Monday!

    Did you know on this day in 1947, President Harry Truman made the very first-ever televised presidential address from the White house? The very FIRST televised address. It's completely normal to see President Obama on television delivering speeches and even watching interviews of him on talk shows such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, so the very first televised Presidential address from the White House is a big deal - at least in the tech world. American citiziens were able to truly engage in this first time experience.

    President Truman asked Americans to cut back on their use of grain in order to help starving Europeans. Europe at this time was recovering from WWII and currently suffering from starvation. He asked U.S. farmers and distillers to decrease the use of grain and requested Americans to be frugal on their daily food intake. For example - on Tuesdays the public forgo meat, on Thursdays will be eggs and poultry, etc. All of this was said on live television. In 1947, television was still in its debut and the number of TV sets in U.S. homes only numbered in the thousands. Most Americans sat around the radio for news, sports, entertainment. Although many missed out on Truman's TV debut, his speech would bridge a huge gap between the White House and a platform that would have an impact on how candidates campaigned for the office in years to come.

    President Truman's speech was televised almost 70 years ago and look how far we have come. We can watch live televised programs on our desktop, laptops and even our smartphones. I wonder what it will be like in another 70 years...

    How do you feel if you saw our U.S. President for the first time on live television? Let us know. Visit our FacebookTwitter and Google+ pages to let us know, or leave a comment below!
