Spanning thirty-three years and 1,504 episodes, "Firing Line" was originally a one-hour debate program (later reduced to a half-hour) hosted by political commentator William F. Buckley. An eloquent interviewer and a formidable debater, Buckley verbally sparred on "Firing Line" with many notable figures in the latter half of the twentieth century. His guests included future U.S. presidents such as Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, venerated writers such as Tom Wolfe and Jack Kerouac, and political intellectuals such as Barry Goldwater and Noam Chomsky. One of the longest-running shows in television history, "Firing Line" garnered an Emmy Award in 1969. Written by
In order to interview television guests for Firing Line, William F. Buckley was compelled by law to join the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), an American labor union. As an anti-union conservative, Buckley abhorred his SAG membership. In 1974, Buckley legally challenged the SAG's union requirements for news broadcasters such as himself. His challenge failed, and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the case. See more »
Starting back in 1966, Bill Buckley was just getting started with his career in journalism and this show would go on for 33 years. Amazing. I watched it from 1981 to '99 right when Bill Clinton was impeached and on trial in the Senate. Buckley was a great host. Sly, cunning and smart. He would always ask the right questions. The only reason the show ended was because Buckley retired. You can't blame him. The man had a great run with this show. I just wish someone else would've taken over as host when the show ended. I know it wouldn't of been the same without Bill, but it still would've kept it going to this day. My God, has there been another talk show that's been on for 33 years or longer? The answer is no, although Ted Koppel's NIGHTLINE has been going on now for a solid 24. I wonder if Bill O'Reilly will be on for 33 years like Buckley was?
