Coverage of the Harding-Cox Election was the first radio news broadcast

Radio station KDKA (1020 kHz) is licensed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Created
by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation on November 2, 1920, it is the world’s
first commercial radio station, a distinction that has also been challenged by other stations. It is currently owned and operated by CBS Radio.
