Who Said That?

Show Summary

"Who Said That" began as an NBC radio program in 1947 devised and emceed by John Cameron Swayze. It graduated to NBC television in 1948 with CBS Radio correspondent Robert Trout serving as the first TV emcee. John Cameron Swayze was a regular panelist. The game was simple: panelists were read a quotation from the current news headlines with their goal being to identify the person being quoted. Sometimes the actual person "who said that" would appear in silhouette to deliver their line. News reporters and celebrities made up the panel each week, which included frequent appearances by Kitty Carlyle, Bennett Serf, Earl Wilson, and Oscar Levant. Emcee duties were assumed by Walter Kiernan from 1951-1954 and then, during it's 1955 run on ABC, John Daly.
