Chapter Overview – Ch. 1 History of Broadcast Media: Marconi, Fessenden, and De Forest were early inventors who helped radio develop. Marconi developed wireless while Fessenden made the first radio broadcast using a high speed alternator on Christmas eve 1906. DeForest invented the Audion . General Electric , Westinghouse , and AT&T were companies that were interested in early radio. Each company held patents needed by the others, and, as a result, many legal battles hampered radio’s early development. During World War I, the Navy took responsibility for patent infringement, which allowed for significant technical improvements in the medium. When the war was over, a new company, RCA , was formed and quickly became the leading company in American radio. Many improvements during the war allowed for greater range and reception.
