WASHINGTON, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
FIRST RADIO COMMERCIAL
Profile America — Thursday, August 28th. "This program is brought to you by ..." Those words, or ones close to them, were heard on this date 92 years ago in what is believed to be the first commercial broadcast on the new medium of radio. Station WEAF in New York City carried that first ad — not for soap or automobiles — but for a group of apartment buildings in Queens. The cost was $100 for 10 minutes of programming. At the time, there were just 30 stations in the whole country, and only 60,000 households had receivers. Now, there are some 15,400 radio stations in the nation, and two thirds of Americans over the age of 12 access the medium daily. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy from the American Community Survey at www.census.gov.
Historical Statistics of the United States: Colonial Times to 1970, p. 796
Profile America is produced by the Center for New Media and Promotions of the U.S. Census Bureau. These daily features are available as produced segments, ready to air, on the Internet at http://www.census.gov (look for "Multimedia Gallery" by the "Newsroom" button).
