We the People was a 30-minute talk show, first on CBS for one season and then on NBC for two seasons. The host
interviewed politicians, celebrities, and everyday people. The interviews tended to be "up close and personal", interviewing celebrities about
difficulties they had to overcome. The non-celebrities were usually people who participated in some type of charitable work. The show was sponsored
by Gulf Oil and produced by Life magazine. The TV show aired Tuesdays at 9pm ET, and then Fridays at 8:30pm ET, and was simulcast on radio and TV
for a time. The show had been aired on CBS Radio since 1936. In October 1948, We the People was rated 3 on the Hooper Ratings, Hooper being a
precursor to Nielsen ratings.
