November 14, 1954

What's My Line? was a CBS program, which means this particular broadcast would have been seen in Cleveland on WEWS Channel 5, which was a CBS affiliate until 1955.

WEWS was Cleveland's first television station, only the 16th in the nation, and went on the air December 17, 1947. The calls letters come from the original owner, Edward Wyllis Scripps. WEWS was the flagship station of the Scripps-Howard Broadcasting Company, who headquarters were located behind the Sterling-Linder-Davis Department Store.
