January 26, 1947: The Greatest Story Told on ABC

 
January 26, 1947: The Greatest Story Ever Told debuted on ABC.

The Greatest Story Ever Told  was a biblical drama series based on the life of Jesus Christ. It was the first ever program that featured him. Warren Parker played Jesus Christ, although it was not announced by the radio station. Other personalities who starred in the show were also anonymous. During the series' entire run, the station decided that there would be no pictures of the performers, no live audience, and even no commercials. The show had its last episode on December 30, 1956.
