CBS Radio News’ weekday legal segment Looking at the Law, which launched four decades ago, this week marks its 10,000th broadcast. The segments, which launched on April 1, 1976, feature attorney and Harvard Medical School professor Neil Chayet. Chayet always ends his reports with a twist or a pun, and the signature tag line, “This is Neil Chayet, Looking at the Law.”
Vice President of CBS News Radio Harvey Nagler said, “Neil thought he would run out of material by now, but with millions of lawsuits brought every year, along with an apparently endless supply of puns, the future is secure. Most listeners have gotten a chuckle – or a groan – from Neil’s last lines and continually marvel at the strange and sometimes wacky cases that find their way into the courtroom.
