Radio News (02:04) October 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"We knew it. The radiophone has at last entered commercial life with a vim which promises many future conquests. In this case the radiophone recently stepped into newspaperdom via the offices of the Los Angeles Examiner. A complete radiophone installation was first erected at the Examiner building, Los Angeles, Cal., and an extension brought down to the editor's desk. After this the reporter and the radio officer left by automobile to "cover" various happenings."
This is the October 1920 issue of Radio News. The cover story is “Reporting News by Radio.” Also included is the first part of an article by Dr. Lee De Forest about his Audion tube.
