Boris Karlof is seen here behind a WNEW microphone in 1950.  It’s a photo we had not seen when a story about Karlof’s series of children’s programs on WNEW was posted on this site.  (See below)  The photo source is a Wikipedia history about WBBR, the financial news broadcaster, owned and operated by Bloomberg L.P., the company that bought out WNEW in 1993.
