Fresh out of college, in the depths of the Depression, Ronald Reagan got hired as a sportscaster. At the time, it was still a pretty new profession. Here’s the background…
In May 1923 – the year Dutch was eleven – a trained concert singer named Graham McNamee had jury duty in lower Manhattan. Wandering around the neighborhood at lunchtime, he noticed AT&T’s new headquarters at 195 Broadway. He later said it was a whim that prompted him to go in, walk through the imposing lobby, and take the elevator to the fourth-floor office of the company’s radio station WEAF.[i] He inquired about a position and took a voice test. By the time he headed back to the courthouse, he had a new job. He’d just been hired as America’s first sportscaster.
