Meet the Press
NBC Radio and Television
Meet the Press for two decades has been making front page news. With a simple news conference format, this series has provided listeners and viewers with guests ranging from poets to kings, scientists to politicians, and labor leaders to business tycoons—all with one essential factor in common: they were “in the news” at the time of their interview. Associated with Lawrence E. Spivak in the conduct of Meet the Press have been the big names of the Fourth Estate. In recognition of both program quality and the 20th anniversary, a Peabody Radio-Television Special Award.
