The Morning Show on the CBS television network aired from 1954 until 1956 and was originally hosted by Walter Cronkite (above). It was very similar to NBC’s The Today Show and was on the air for two hours from 7-9 a.m. ET until being reduced to one
hour to accommodate the premiere of Captain Kangaroo in 1955. Additional hosts
over the years included Jack Paar, John Henry Faulk, and Dick Van Dyke.
