I will try to write something more contemplative later today on this, my 35th birthday. I'm too sick and too tired to do so now.

But I am quite pleased to learn that I share a birthday with a journalism milestone. On this date in 1938, the first CBS "World News Roundup" aired on CBS Radio with Robert Trout (at left) broadcasting from New York.

You can hear it here. The Nazis are invading Austria.

The show still airs today, albeit in/with a slightly different format.

Happy birthday, WNR!
