WNBT Schedule, Week of April 6th, 1947

Here’s the schedule for WNBT (NBC’s flagship TV station in New York City) for the week starting Sunday, April 6th, 1947. The New York Times published daily listings for television stations in the city, including WNBT, alongside its comprehensive radio listings.

The big event this week was baseball. WNBT aired an exhibition game between the New York Giants and the Cleveland Indians on Saturday, April 12th.

Earlier in the week, WNBT devoted much of its lineup on Sunday, April 6th to Easter programs. An Easter Parade aired at 12:30PM, a church service at 4PM, and a film called Story of the Resurrection at 9PM. Also airing that day were Tele-varieties and NBC Television Theater.

No programs were scheduled for Tuesday, April 7th. WNBT signed on the air on Wednesday, April 8th to telecast a spelling bee.

More changes were made to the Thursday lineup on April 10th. Juvenile Jury aired again, followed by an unidentified variety program. Something called Our Submarine Service followed the regular broadcast of You Are an Artist.
