Publisher's Summary

"The Big Story... Here is America, its sound and its fury, its joy and its sorrow, as faithfully reported by the men and women of the great American newspapers." With this summation, announcer Ernest Chappell introduced one of radio's most stirring dramatic anthologies, with each episode highlighting an individual newspaper reporter's greatest achievement for his or her paper. Narrator Bob Sloan leads you through investigative exploits from some of the nation's largest dailies and smallest town publications - covering everything from rackets and corruption to human interest stories to murders.
