  • The Incredible History Of ABC-TV/60 Years Of Fascinating Facts

    by Man From Yesterday

In came Leonard Goldenson and United Paramount Theaters and a cash infusion. Goldenson gave ABC-TV a respectable 1953-1954 program schedule that helped knock-off rival Dumont - but its journey was just beginning. ABC-TV began with little ratings, few TV stations, no stars, no sports and nary a news presence. Goldenson and his team (s) beg... more
