   Broadcast & Communications Industry Newsletter

The Heinl Radio Business Letter began publication in 1926.
It covered actions of the FCC as those of other regulators as well as providing information about radio and TV set manufacturers,  news about advertising and related fields.
The letter was founded by Robert D. Heinl who died in 1950; the publication closed with his passing.
From the Final Issue of the Heinl Radio News Letter
(November 30, 1950) With this issue, after 26 years of publication, Heinl Radio News Service discontinues, following the death of its founder and editor, Robert D. Heinl, on November 26th. Mr. Heinl's obituary appears elsewhere in this issue. The pioneer service of its kind in the United States, HNS was founded in Washington in 1924, initially as a news service for
newspapers interested in exploiting the novelty of radio. Its original
subscribers included The New York Times, Cleveland Press, St.
Louis Globe-Democrat, and The Chicago Tribune. In 1926, as radio began to grow out of the novelty stage, Mr. Heinl, who was in close touch with the Radio Commission -- predecessor of the Federal Communications Commission -- realized the need of the burgeoning industry for trade information and for coverage of Washington's actions and trends in a field dominated from its outset by the Government. As a result, the Heinl Radio Business Letter came into being as a trade newsletter.
