See It Now is an American newsmagazine and documentary series broadcast by CBS from 1951 to 1958. It was created by Edward R. Murrow and Fred W. Friendly, with Murrow as the host of the show. From 1952 to 1957, See It Now won four Emmy Awards, shows 3 "wins" and 3 nominations.[1] and was nominated three other times. It also won a 1952 Peabody Award.

Report of Senator McCarthy[edit]

Murrow produced a number of episodes of the show that dealt with the Communist witch-hunt hysteria (one of the more notable episodes resulted in a U.S. military officer, Milo Radulovich, being acquitted, after being charged with supporting Communism), before embarking on a broadcast on March 9, 1954[2][3]

2000s[edit]

In September 2006, "See It Now" became the slogan for a relaunched CBS Evening News with new anchor Katie Couric.[4]
