Next Episode of Douglas Edwards With The News is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
CBS began broadcasting full-length news shows on Saturday nights, expanding to two nights a week in 1947. On August 15, 1948, CBS launched its nightly 15-minute news show as CBS Television News at 7:30 p.m., anchored by Douglas Edwards; it was broadcast in five eastern cities. The show was later sponsored by Oldsmobile. In 1950 its name changed to Douglas Edwards with the News. When in 1951 it became the first news program to be broadcast on both coasts, thanks to a new coaxial cable, Edwards started using the greeting "Good evening everyone, coast to coast." The program competed against the Camel News Caravan on NBC, launched in 1949. Edwards attracted more viewers during the mid-1950s, but lost ground when Chet Huntley and David Brinkley were teamed up by NBC on the Huntley-Brinkley Report. The Edwards broadcast was the first television program to use videotape, which was used to time delay broadcasts to the western U.S. on November 30, 1956. However, none of these early recordings is known to survive.
