The Scholastic Games quiz show production was halted mid-season in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we were able to complete the series of broadcasts due to an early production schedule.  We plan to have a complete a 2020-2021 season beginning after the first of the year.  Details will be announced soon on this website.


Scheduled commercial broadcasting in America began on Nov. 2, 1920, with election returns presented on KDKA radio in Pittsburgh.  Sixty-five years later, Jim Mehrling, the host and producer of the Scholastic Games quiz, was able to locate and interview Leo Rosenberg, KDKA 2020the man who had been the announcer on that broadcast.   At age 89, Rosenberg recalled the event in vivid detail.  Beginning with that interview, Mehrling has compiled a documentary on radio’s evolution and history on the occasion of radio’s centennial which he offers for your enjoyment here.  Just click on this link.
