123-120924 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - Truth or Consequences

For seven weeks in early 1948, the question on the lips of America was, "Who is the Walking Man?"

The Walking Man was heard walking across the stage every week on the radio show Truth or Consequences, and the prizes awarded the winner of the contest totalled nearly a quarter of a million dollars in today's money.

The winner, and the Walking Man, are revealed in this episode of Truth or Consequences.

Truth or Consequences, created and hosted by Ralph Edwards, ran from 1940 to 1956 on radio, and from 1950 to 1978 on television.

This episode, with guest William Bendix who was then starring in The Life of Riley, first aired on March 6, 1948.
