Broadway To Hollywood Headline Clues was a mixture of news, gossip, celebrity interviews, and a home viewer quiz all rolled in one.

GameplayEdit

The program opened with a summary of the day's news. Then viewers were telephoned and quizzed on the news stories just presented for prizes. By 1951, the quiz segment was dropped and the show became much more of a news and feature show.

TriviaEdit

  • This combination quiz show made its debut as Headline Clues. Only the nighttime version used the longer title, adopting it on October 21, 1949.
  • From 1949-51, the quiz element was featured.
  • The original nighttime host, George F. Putnam, would later achieve greater recognition as a newscaster in the Los Angeles area during the 1950s-60s.
