NBC Pages Get Makeover

Aug 13, 2008  •  Post A Comment

NBC pages have a new uniform designed by Brooks Brothers to celebrate the page program’s 75th anniversary, the New York Post reports. The new suits were chosen by viewers in an online poll announced by “Today,” the newspaper says.

  1. Just FYI….this was NOT the uniform that the
    guidettes or pages wore in the 1960’s. I was a
    guidette in 1967-68 and this definitely was not
    it. We had a tight skirt to knee and a jacket and
    a blue blouse…all navy blue. We wore whatever
    blue shoes we wanted. The logo behind the group
    was not the logo for NBC then either. Someone has
    given you wrong information.
    By the way, the new guidette uniforms are terrible.
    They are not feminine at all! They look like girls
    dressing as guys! Whats up with that?!?!?!
    Who wants to see a woman dressed like that! Poor choice!

  2. NBC & ME:
    by Herbie J Pilato
    From May 1984 to December 1985, Herbie J Pilato worked as a Page for NBC in Burbank, California. Many Pages were excited by their unique internship and frequent showbiz interactions that were accessible and provided by a major TV network facility. Some found work within and outside of the industry. Others found their job only uncovered a depressing, even insulting Hollywood experience. For Herbie J, it was the ultimate, as he found himself on the set of classic sitcoms like Family Ties and The Golden Girls, and remade game shows like The All New Let’s Make A Deal. He also helped to coordinate an affiliates’ convention, two press tours, five Bob Hope specials, An All-Star Salute To President Dutch Reagan, the 1984 Democratic Presidential Debates, and the 1984 Emmy Awards. He laughed with established comedians, encountered majors stars (John Travolta, Farrah Fawcett, Paul McCartney, Johnny Carson) lunched with network suits, hob-knobbed with celebrities, stuffed envelopes – and passed out tickets to Scrabble – all for a measly $5.20 an hour. It’s an experience that he remembers in-depth – and with tongue-in-cheek – in NBC & ME: MY LIFE AS A PAGE IN A BOOK – which is not only the first book to chronicle the life of an NBC Page – but the life of any network Page.
