Benny had been only a minor vaudeville
performer, but he became a national figure with The Jack Benny
weekly radio show which ran from 1932 to 1948 on NBC
and from 1949 to 1955 on CBS, and was consistently among the
most highly rated programs during most of that
With Canada Dry as a sponsor, Benny came to
radio on The Canada Dry Program, beginning May 1932, on the NBC
Network and continuing there for six months until
October moving the show to CBS on October 30. With Ted
leading the band, Benny stayed on CBS until January
Arriving at NBC on March 17, Benny did The Chevrolet
Program until April 1, 1934. He continued with sponsors
General Tires, Jell-O and Grape-Nuts. Lucky Strike
was the radio sponsor from 1944 to the mid-1950s.
The show returned to CBS on January 2, 1949, as part
of CBS president William S. Paley's notorious "raid" of NBC
talent in 1948-49. There it stayed for the remainder
of its radio run, which ended on May 22, 1955. CBS aired
reruns of old radio episodes from 1956 to 1958 as
The Best of Benny.
