John Charles Daly

John Charles Patrick Croghan Daly known as John Charles Daly or John Daly, was a South African-born American radio and television personality, CBS News broadcast journalist, ABC News executive and TV anchor and a game show host, best known as the host and moderator of the CBS television panel show What's My Line? In World War II, he was the first national correspondent to report the attack on Pearl Harbor, the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt, as well as covering much of the front-line news from Europe and North Africa; the second of two brothers, Daly was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, where his American father worked as a geologist. While in Johannesburg, Daly attended Marist Brothers College. After his father died of a tropical fever, Daly's mother moved the family to Massachusetts, he attended the Tilton School and served on its board of directors for many years and contributed to the construction or restoration of many buildings on campus. He did his post-secondary education at a junior college and finished his studies graduating from Boston College.

Daly worked for a time in a wool factory and for a transit company in Washington before becoming a reporter for NBC Radio and CBS. Daly began his broadcasting career as a reporter for NBC Radio, for WJSV, the local CBS Radio Network affiliate in Washington, D. C. serving as CBS' White House correspondent. He appears on the famous "One Day in Radio" tapes of September 21, 1939, in which WJSV preserved its entire broadcast day for posterity. Through covering the Roosevelt White House, Daly became known to the national CBS audience as the network announcer for many of the President's speeches. In late 1941, Daly transferred to New York City. During World War II, he covered the news from London as well as the North African and Italian fronts. Daly was a war correspondent in 1943 in Italy during Gen. George S. Patton's infamous "slapping incidents". After the war, he was a lead reporter on CBS Radio's news/entertainment program CBS Is There, which recreated the great events of history as if CBS correspondents were on the scene.

As a reporter for the CBS radio network, Daly was the voice of two historic announcements. He was the first national correspondent to deliver the news of the attack on Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 7, 1941, he was the first to relay the wire service report of the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt on April 12, 1945, interrupting the program Wilderness Road to deliver the news. Recreations of those bulletins have been preserved on historical record album retrospectives and radio and television documentaries. Among the first were the Columbia Records spoken word album I Can Hear It Now. In July, 1959, along with the Associated Press writer John Scali, he reported from Moscow on the famous Kitchen Debate between USSR General Secretary Nikita Khrushchev and U. S. Vice President Richard M. Nixon in 1959. Daly's first foray into television was; this led to a job in 1950 as the host and moderator on a new panel show produced by Goodson–Todman, What's My Line? The show lasted 17 years with Daly hosting all but four episodes of the weekly series.

In 1954–55, in addition to his duties with What's My Line?, Daly hosted the final year of the NBC Television game show Who Said That?, in which celebrities tried to determine the speaker of quotations taken from recent news reports. On What's My Line?, each panelist introduced the next in line at the start of the show. Upon Fred Allen's death in 1956, Random House book publisher co-founder and humorist Bennett Cerf became the anchor panelist who would but not always, introduce Daly. Cerf prefaced his introduction with a pun or joke that over time became a pun or joke at Daly's expense. Daly would often fire back his own retort. Cerf and Daly enjoyed a friendly feud from across the stage for the remainder of the history of the program; the mystery guest on the final CBS program was Daly himself. Daly had received many letters over the years asking him to fill that role. According to producer Gil Fates, Daly was resistant to changes that would have appealed to a younger audience but might have diminished the show's dignity.

For example, Daly referred to the panelists formally, e.g. as "Mr. Cerf." The producers, Fates said, were unable to challenge Daly for fear of losing him as the show's moderator. The series spawned a brief radio version in 1952, hosted by Daly; the series inspired a multitude of concurrent international versions and a syndicated U. S. revival in 1968 in which Daly did not participate. He was a vice president at ABC during the 1950s, he did hosting duties on Who Said That?, It's News to Me, We Take Your Word, Open Hearing and was a narrator on The Voice of Firestone starting in 1958. He had several television and movie guest appearances from the late 1940s to the mid-1960s, including an uncredited role in Bye Bye Birdie and as the narrator, in a mock documentary style, on the premiere episode of the rural comedy series Green Acres. In 1949 he starred in the short-lived CBS Television newspaper drama The Front Page, where it was thought that his presence and journalistic experience would give the series more authenticity.

During the 1950s, Daly became the vice president in charge of news, special events, public affairs, religious programs and sports for ABC and won three Peabody Awards. From 1953 to
