This broadcast started at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, originating from a tiny, makeshift shack atop one of the Westinghouse Electric buildings in East Pittsburgh. Four men took
part in that first broadcast: Engineer William Thomas, telephone line operator John Frazier, R.S. McClelland, a standby, and Leo Rosenberg, radio’s first announcer. This
broadcast relayed the election results to about a thousand listeners, stating that Warren Harding beat James Cox in the race for the Oval Office.
