Dave Garroway was the first "communicator" on NBC Radio's Monitor when the program began on June 12, 1955. He continued as the Sunday evening host of the news/music program from 1955 to 1961 Because of Garroway's dedication to the cause of mental health, his third wife, Sarah, helped establish the Dave Garroway Laboratory for the Study of Depression at the University of Pennsylvania. He is buried in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.
