Your Kaiser Dealer Presents Kaiser-Frazer "Adventures In Mystery" Starring Betty Furness in "Byline" was a brief series of live mysteries that aired from November 4 through December 9, 1951, on ABC television.[1]

In the 1950s, when companies directly sponsored entire TV programs, it was not unusual for a sponsor to place its name directly on the title of the show (such as The US Steel Hour or The Bell Telephone Hour). But Kaiser Motors obviously took things a little too far; the full fourteen-word title is believed to be the longest for any program in US TV history.

The show was usually known simply as Byline during its six-week prime time run, and as News Gal when the series aired Saturdays at noon on the DuMont Television Network for two weeks in October 1951.
