In 1948-1949, the Yankee Network was in a period of transition.  Founder 
and long-time owner John Shepard III was in poor health  (he would 
finally succumb to heart disease in June 1950) and had just stepped down 
from his role as president of the network.  He had sold Yankee earlier 
in the 40s but still remained to run it till his contract with new owner 
General Tire ended, and he concluded his more than two decade 
association with Yankee.
