Radio station WJZ in Newark, New Jersey was the first to broadcast the World Series in 1921. Thomas Cowan recreated the games between the New York Yankees and New York Giants from reports that were phoned in from the Polo Grounds.

The first Radio transmitting was in Argentina, on the 27 August 1920 from a roof of the Coliseo Theatre, in Buenos Aires. These transmissions were done by the Society of Radio Argentina, by the "crazy of the roof" they transmitted the Opera: Parsifal by Richard Wagner, interpreted by the Soprano Sara Cesar. That is why the international Radio day in the world is the 27th of august.
