Consumer advocate and former film and TV actress Betty Furness displaying
a Westinghouse refrigerator during a commercial break in 1956

In 1948 Betty Furness was performing in the CBS television series Studio One which
was broadcast live. She was asked to fill in for a actor to promote Westinghouse products during commercial breaks and impressed the company so much with
her ease and professional delivery that she was offered a contract to promote
their products and subsequently became closely associated with them.

    Did an advertising agency come up with the slogan “You can be sure if it’s Westinghouse’? if so, does anyone know which agency?
