These include the distinction of being the first gospel quartet to ever appear on live network television as the guest of Dave Garroway on NBC’s “Today Show” in the early 1950s. They also hosted the nation’s first weekly scheduled gospel music television program that was regular viewing for a million fans in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and Virginia for nearly two decades. The GHB still can be seen on TV by way of their videos and guest appearances on several popular shows.
