Keep Posted (also known as The Big Issue) was a United States public affairs TV series on the now-defunct DuMont Television Network which was sponsored by The Saturday Evening Post for its first season.

Broadcast history[edit]

Keep Posted was a 30-minute program which aired on DuMont on Tuesdays at 8:30 pm EST (moved to Mondays at 8:30pm EST in the final season) from October 9, 1951 to January 18, 1954. Martha Rountree was the moderator, and Lawrence Spivak and Ray Wood were among the panelists.[1][2] Both Rountree and Spivak were involved in the creation of Meet the Press on NBC.
