WNBQ Chicago

[Long Beach Press Telegram January 8, 1950 news item.]
Dave Garroway got into radio by accident. After graduation from Washington University in St. Louis in 1935, he got a job selling piston rings. In three months
he didn't sell one. So he entered Harvard Business School. By accident, he met a friend who mentioned that NBC had openings for page boys in New York.
Dave applied for a job at Radio City. He became a guide, then a guide trainer and took the network's announcer's course in his spare time. In his first audition,
he finished 23rd in a class of 24. But a few days later, he was hired by Station KDKA in Pittsburgh. He remained there until 1940, when he joine WMAQ in Chicago.
In 1942, he joined the Navy as an ensign and saw service aboard a mine sweeper in Honolulu. He was discharged a lieutenant and returned to WMAQ in 1945.
