Another broadcast icon passed today - Don Hewitt who created CBS News.

I saw Hewitt give a lecture at Harvard years ago. Told the story of
how the City of Boston was going to ruin CBS with a lawsuit over this
program in 1961.

WHDH-TV almost lost the coveted CBS affilation when they buckled to
Mayor Collins demanding the show not air in Boston.  Paley tried to
buy another station in Boston but there were no options.

The show did air on Channel 12 and also Channel 9
