NBC made it possible for a national audience to share in a single experience, be it a presidential address or a baseball game. David Sarnoff had envisioned such a service as early as 1915, when, in a memo to his boss at the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of America, he proposed a broadcast radio network whereby "events of national importance can be simultaneously announced and received," and "baseball scores can be transmitted in the air." His vision became a reality in 1926, with the founding of NBC.

The EW report notes: “The network confirmed Weatherly’s exit after David McCallum, . Ducky, unexpectely revealed Weatherly’s departure in a British publication called Vulture Hound.”
