June 25th Holidays
- Color TV Day
On June 25th in 1951, at 4:35 p.m. Eastern Time, CBS made the first color tv broadcast. It was an hour-long variety show called Premiere, which featured Arthur Godfrey, Ed Sullivan, Garry Moore, Robert Alda and Faye Emerson. The program was transmitted from CBS’s New York City studio and to Boston, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia. The only catch was that only tvs built for color could pick up the transmission, so people with black-and-white tv sets who were tuned to CBS just saw a blank screen. So to observe this day we now celebrate Color TV Day.
