One immediate reason to turn to your CBS Radio Station and stay there: News!

You don’t need much of a radio station to give you a quick sketch of the news. Which is exactly why there’s nothing sketchy about the news on a CBS Radio Network station.

It’s the one that really fills you in. Complete news on the hour. At least 10 minutes of hourly news weekdays. Outstanding news features like “World News Roundup” and “The World Tonight.” And top reporters all the time.

The men who deliver our news have the depth and experience and insight you want. The eight correspondents in this ad, for example, are voices you recognize. And they are only eight of a famous world-wide staff.

But don’t take our word for it. Tune in on your CBS Radio station (listed opposite) for one whole day.

You’ll know what’s happening in the world. And around the corner, too.

If the world situation has you emotionally mixed up, listen to our analyst. On CBS Radio.

Walter Cronkite is the kind of newsman other newsmen listen to on their day off. And with good reason. Walter’s knowledge and sense of history bring order and understanding to world events. Order and understanding we all can use.

But Walter isn’t the only good news on the CBS Radio Network.

There’s Allan Jackson, Douglas Edwards, Harry Reasoner, Mike Wallace, Richard C Hottelet, Reid Collins, Eric Sevareid, Lowell Thomas, Dallas Townsend and a lot more. Virtually a who’s who of award-winning CBS News correspondents.
