Who Said That? was a news quiz featuring a panel composed of journalist and guest celebrities who tried to guess the author of a quotation that was recently in the news.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Panelists had to describe the circumstances surrounding the quote. Starting in the television version in December 1948, they were each penalized $5 if they did not come up with the correct answers. The money went into a jackpot which went to a home person if they sent the quote, or to a charity if they were thought up by the producers. In addition, home people were also to submit the "All-Time Quotes" (one of the most important quotes in all of the news) and if one was used on the show, the viewer won a $50 bonus.
