On May 18, 1934, the New York press announced that George Ansbro would become the citys youngest network staff announcer. Ansbros successful audition at ABC led to a career that included work on Young Widder Brown, Manhattan Maharajah and Dr. I.Q., the television show from which the books title is taken. Fifty-five years after his broadcast beginning, he was hailed as a pioneer and held the honor of being the oldest employee of any network.

From his role as an NBC page in 1931 to his career as a network announcer, Ansbro recalls an era that includes a whos who of early radio and Hollywood stars, and a transition from what was known as the Blue Network and its beginnings to the massive radio and television organization now known as ABC. Along with such names as Howard Cosell, Bob Hope, and Mary Pickford, Ansbro helped shape the modern entertainment world.
