John F. Royal (1886-1978), the brains behind the concept of a studio audience, was the executive vice president of NBC for several decades of the first half of the 20th century. He was the vice president in charge of NBC radio programs in the late 20s, 30s, and early 40s who then transitioned to TV during the 1950s. Before becoming an NBC executive, Royal was a newspaperman in Boston. He started working in show business, becoming a press agent. Shortly after connecting with vaudeville guru B.F. Keith, he began managing a Cincinnati theater, and then was put in charge of the Cleveland Hippodrome. Royal finally ended up at Cleveland radio station WTAM, which was bought by NBC in the 1920s. Royal worked for NBC until his forced retirement at the age of 65. Lightly toned. Two horizontal mailing folds. Rippling at printed text of letterhead. Otherwise, fine condition.
