Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: During what program did Orson Welles read the script of War of the Worlds, in a famous incident that caused panic among the station’s six million listeners? Also, which station was it? That answer was The Mercury Theatre on the Air, and it was on CBS Radio Network!

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer both correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Hiram ReisnerM. Edward BoraskyJeanne KirkJack SchofieldeschumanClaudine LaforceEmily Grant and Hollywood Highlands, for also getting one or both answers!

Here's today's question: The notoriety of the War of the Worlds fracas had the unintended but welcome effect of attracting sponsorship of Mercury Theatre from what brand? And what was it later renamed as a result?
