(Left to right) Broadcast Pioneers member Dr. Francis Davis and Stan Strauss
Broadcast Pioneers member Jackie Strauss says:
(The picture) is of Dr. Francis Davis and my husband, Stan Strauss. The photo was taken in 1970 when Stan,
through the auspices of the General Electric Co. by whom he was employed at the time, suggested its use by Dr. Davis in his weather forecasting. It was the first time satellite weather technology was used on the air by any meteorologist.
See the satellite image between Davis and Strauss. The station was WFIL-TV, Channel 6 in Philadelphia. General Electric later became owner of NBC.
