October 5th

President Harry Truman

On This Day In History…

The first Presidential speech was given on TV, on this day in history, October 5th, 1947.  It was given by President Harry Truman.  It was his speech on getting everyone to conserve food rations, soon after World War 2.

Just think about how many Presidential speeches have been made on TV since then.  It seems that the current president has had more than any other.  I’ve gotten to the point that I dread hearing that one is coming up.

Back then, it was probably exciting to get to see and hear the President of the United States of America, talking to you about what was happening in the U.S.

This is where it all started.

Stay tuned for another, “On This Day In History”…
