Age 19

The infamous radio debut of War of the Worlds (an adaptation of the novel by Orson Welles) was broadcast from New Jersey. The drama program was framed as a news broadcast describing an alien invasion, which reportedly caused panic among a small subset of listeners that tuned in late. However, the newspaper industry exaggerated reports of the confusion to make it sound widespread. It's believed that the newspaper industry was attempting to take advantage of the situation to discredit the reliability of radio broadcasting.
