We are so accustomed to seeing a president on TV these days.   However, it was not until President Truman that we got a nationally televised speech:
On this day in 1951, President Harry S. Truman’s opening speech before a conference in San Francisco is broadcast across the nation, marking the first time a television program was broadcast from coast to coast. 
The speech focused on Truman’s acceptance of a treaty that officially ended America’s post-World War II occupation of Japan.
Truman was in second term and facing challenges in the Korea War as well as domestic issues.
