Here's an early Saturday evening newscast on KYW Radio, broadcast over both AM & FM. Remember that there was a KYW-FM at that time. The clip dates from Saturday, January 5, 1952. The announcer has not yet been unidentified. Can anyone help? E-mail us.

The unknown announcer form the clip from 1952, KYW sounds to be Hugh Walton. I have several of his old broadcasts from the late 30's with Jan Savitt and the Top Hatters which was the house band at KYW at that time until he went to NY around 1939....
The next program after this newscast was the latest sports with KYW Radio's Jim Rodgers. Listen to it here!
