SynopsisEdit

The series stars Harry Guardino as Danny Taylor, a reporter for the fictitious New York Globe newspaper. Guardino's co-stars were Gary Merrill as city editor Lou Sheldon, George O'Hanlon as taxi driver Artie Burns, a friend of Danny's, and Remo Pisani as bartender Ike Dawson.[1]

The Reporter aired at 10 p.m. Eastern on Fridays following the first season of the CBS situation comedy, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.. It aired opposite The Jack Paar Program on NBC and the second half of ABC's military drama, Twelve O'Clock High starring Robert Lansing.[2]

The series was replaced by CBS Reports, which, on the orders of programming executive Jim Aubrey, ran without commercials to keep the program from being included in the 1965 Nielsen ratings.[3]
