Forecast presented auditions and first episodes of new shows, all trial performances that were described as “proposed new series.” Audiences were introduced to a full spectrum of entertainment, from comedy and drama to mystery, suspense and literature. Listeners were asked for their opinions and support for the shows, and several shows did, indeed, become successful weekly programs.

Forecast was a CBS summer replacement that aired from July to September in both 1940 and 1941. In radio, replacement programs filled time slots during scheduling breaks, especially between broadcast seasons. The program was a high-level, ambitious production, with many well-known actors, producers and directors taking to the audio stage.
