THE HISTORIC McCARTHY HEARINGS ON WARM TV
April 1954 was a pivotal time in American history. Senator Joseph McCarthy appeared before the United States Senate to answer questions about his claims about Communists in government. The televised hearings were in effect the Waterloo of McCarthy's career. WARM TV, Channel 16 took the live broadcast of those hearings from mid day to late afternoon.
Prior to that, WARM TV signed on at 4pm. The hearings added heft to the programming schedule.
One of the most memorable moments was when the Counsel for the Senate, Joseph Welsh took McCarthy straight on. This happened in June of 1954, this ad was placed when the hearings started in late April.
