Short Description

Hugo Gernsback's Radio News was the most succesful radio and technology magazine in broadcasting's first decades. It was published from July of 1919 through April of 1959 under several variations of the title. A total of 477 issues were published. Radio News was aimed at the enthusiastic amateur, but includes a wealth of material that documents the evolution of electronic media in the United States.

The first issue of Radio News was published in 1919, as Radio Amateur News. With the July 1920 issue, it dropped the word "Amateur" from the title. (See below chart for further title changes.) From May 1959 to December 1971, it was published as Electronics World.

The magazine absorbed Radio Call Book and Techincal Review with the December 1932 issue.  With the August 1938 issue, All-Wave Radio magazine was absorbed.

When the magazine added "and the Short-Wave" to the cover title in October 1933, the editor, Laurence M. Cockaday, wrote about the change, "...for the short waves have actually become, during the last four years, the greatest part of radio." No explanation was given for the change back to just Radio News, but the magazine had just changed publishers two months before the change was made.

It is interesting to note, that even with the addition of "Short Wave" to the cover title from 1933 to 1938, the magazine always referred to itself as Radio News. This ended with the change to Radio & Television News
