April 30th marks the anniversary of the first scheduled television broadcast which featured Franklin D. Roosevelt's address to open the 1939 World’s Fair in New York.
The New York World's Fair opened as FDR became the first U.S. president to appear on television when he was shown on opening day at the New York World's Fair.
At the time, only few households owned the luxury of a television, so NBC positioned TVs around the NYC area for public access. Watch a clip of that historical first broadcast:
