Upon becoming commercial station WCBW in 1941, the pioneer CBS television station at New York City broadcast two daily news programs, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. weekdays, anchored by Richard Hubbell. Most of the featured Hubbell reading a script with only occasional cutaways to map or still photograph. When Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941, WCBW (which was usually off the air on Sunday to give engineers a day off), took to the air at 8:45 p.m. with an extensive special report. The national emergency even broke down the unspoken wall between CBS radio and television. WCBW convinced radio announcers and experts such as George Fielding Elliot and Linton Wells to come down to Grand Central studios during the evening and give information and commentary on attack. The WCBW special report that night lasted less than 90 minutes. But that special broadcast pushed the limits of live television in 1941 and opened up new possibilities for future broadcasts. As CBS wrote in a special report to the FCC, unscheduled live news broadcast on December 7 “was unquestionably the most challenge and marked the greatest advance of any single problem faced up to that time.
