Brian Henderson's Bandstand (1958-1972)
Henderson hosted the Australian version of Bandstand from 1958 until 1972. Henderson also holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement in late November 2002. From his first news broadcast in 1957, the tag-line Henderson used to sign off at the end of every newscast was either "...and that's the way it is" or "the way it is", similar to Walter Cronkite.
More to come...I hope.
