Abstract:

"ABC, NBC, and CBS are the three names commonly associated with network television. The fourth name, Du Mont, is rarely recognized by people who are either younger than fifty or not communications students. The Du Mont Television Network: What Happened? tells the story of the rise, development, and failure of this fourth network." "Bergmann and Skutch present Du Mont's story in a dramatic, narrative style, from its days in the basement of an old pickle factory to its collaborations with the Paramount company. The story of the network's founder, Dr. Allen Du Mont, and details about management, programs, new technologies, and the network's fall from grace create a fascinating read."--BOOK JACKET.
