Off the Cuff





 1964 | WBKB-TV

Norman Ross’ two-hour weekly Off The Cuff program seems to have disproved the contention of pessimists that television would ultimately kill off all conversation in the homes of the nation. His program whets the appetite for exchange of discussion by articulate speakers on many subjects, often esoteric and erudite, and yet brought to the level of everyday living in a stimulating and exciting manner. Norman Ross has a special gift for catalyzing these exchanges with intelligence, candor, and wit. For this unique and lively public service at the improbable hours of 12:10 AM to 2:10 AM, Monday, (actually after midnight Sunday), the Peabody Award goes to Norman Ross who is well-informed from atomic energy to Zen Buddhism.
