> Description 
CBS' boxing coverage was aired exclusively on Wednesday nights. Russ Hodges was the first CBS announcer for bouts originating from White Plains, New York, and St. Nicholas Arena. The series was given the title International Boxing Club Bouts in the fall of 1949, not long before Hodges left to be replaced by Ted Husing in March of 1950. Husing remained for roughly 16 months; Hdges returned in the summer of 1951, when the title was changed to Blue Ribbon Bouts; and Jack Drees arrived in 1954. Dress and Hodges shared announcing duties during that last CBS year and both stayed with the show when ABC took it over in June 1955. As was true on NBC, coverage was extended beyond the New York area in the early 1950's, to locations where the most promotable fights were being staged.
