WNBT Schedule, Week of June 15th, 1947

Here’s the schedule for WNBT (NBC’s flagship TV station in New York City) for the week starting Sunday, June 15th, 1947. The New York Times published daily listings for television stations in the city, including WNBT, alongside its comprehensive radio listings.

There were no baseball games scheduled this week, but WNBT did broadcast the Roy Rogers Thrill Circus. Twice, in fact. First on Sunday (June 15th) and again on Saturday (June 21st).

Otherwise, it was a typical week for WNBT, with one exception. The station–and possibly the limited NBC network–aired coverage of Princeton University’s bicentennial celebration on Tuesday (June 17th). On hand was President Harry Truman, who received an honorary degree and delivered the convocation address.

On Wednesday (June 18th), Kraft Television Theatre aired its seventh episode, titled “The Doll’s House.” Also, the second-to-last episode of The Wife Saver aired on Thursday (June 19th).
