Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A broadcast network is an organization, such as a corporation or other association, that provides live or recorded content, such as movies, newscasts, sports, and public affairs programs for broadcast over a group of radio or television stations. They are generally primarily either a television network or a radio network, although some organizations run both types of networks. Webcasting is sometimes considered a form of broadcasting, in which case its practitioners may also be called "broadcasters" or even "broadcast networks." Reginald Fessenden, a former engineer and communications researcher for the U.S. Weather Bureau was the first to transmit the first radio broadcast. His broadcasts were to ships at sea which he used his telegraph equipment. His programs consisted of a recorded Handel piece, a violin performance, and a reading from the Bible. He was the first to transmit the human voice. General Electric was encouraged by what Fessenden did that they discovered the Radio Corporation of America. Around this time was when AT&T got involved in radio.
