Wireless Age, 01:07 April 1914


Publisher: G-Books.com



The Wireless Age is one of the very earliest radio communication magazines, running monthly from 1913 to 1930. The magazine was initially published by the Marconi Publishing Corporation, with early mastheads listing it as "incorporating the Marconigraph." By 1920 it was being published by Wireless Press, Inc., in New York, London, and Sydney. 

Major J. Andrew White was the magazine's founder and editor and played significant roles in early radio history himself. In 1921 he became America's first sportscaster when he broadcast the Dempsey-Carpentier fight. The popularity of the groundbreaking broadcast spurred the development of radio stations and the sale of receivers to the public. After the fight he was hired as the station manager for RCA's WDY station in New Rochelle, NJ and later moved to their WJZ station in White Plains, NY. In 1924, he broadcast the first presidential nominating conventions for RCA: for the Republicans in Cleveland and then in New York for the Democrats. Eventually he moved to the CBS network upon its creation.

This G-Book® downloadable e-magazine reproduces a very early issue of The Wireless Age from April 1914, Vol. 1, No. 7.
