Report to the Nation

This CBS program was a mixture of news remotes and re-creations of news events via dramatized skits. Jimmy Stewart appeared on the program on March 20, 1943. Since, at this time, Stewart was serving in the Air Corps, it is likely that his contribution was pre-recorded. Douglas Edwards was the show’s host and Woody Guthrie was also a guest.

The following newspaper listing is from the El Paso Herald-Post, El Paso, TX, on the day of the broadcast.

In the program, Mr. Stewart speaks on behalf of the American Red Cross and makes a plea for blood donors.

This program is not in general circulation, but is available at the Library of Congress.
