U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for June 25: Living Color
WASHINGTON, June 25, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Following is the daily “Profile America” feature from the U.S. Census Bureau: LIVING COLOR Profile America — Sunday, June 25th. Today is the anniversary of the first color television broadcast. In 1951, CBS transmitted the appropriately named program “Premiere” from New York City and through stations in Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia. By the end of 1957, while nearly 39 million U.S. households had TV sets, only 150,000 were color units. Sales of color sets caught up with those of black and white sets around 1970. Shortly thereafter, American consumers began preferring foreign manufactured sets, and in 1995, the last major domestic brand was sold to a Korean firm. What little receiver manufacturing remains is a $156 million dollar a year domestic business.
