Index to WNBT Historical TV Schedules: 1947

Here’s an index to television listings from 1947 for commercial New York City station WNBT, the flagship NBC station. These listings were originally published in The New York Times. The station was founded in 1928 by the Radio Corporation of America as W2XBS. In April 1939 began the first regularly scheduled (but still experimental) television broadcasts in the United States.

When FCC-sanctioned commercial television began in July 1941, W2XBS became WNBT, the only station in the country ready for sponsors.

Note: Television listings published in newspapers were based on information provided by stations and were subject to change at the last minute. They may not be an accurate representation of what actually aired.
