1st 1-900 Number? Question on Millionaire Show

Because of Christmastime, I am away from my usual email.
I am Carl Moore (

On ABC-TV "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" show which aired last Friday
(Dec. 24), there was a question about the 1st 1-900 number (in 1980?).
The answer given was that it was used for Reagan-Carter debate (in
U.S. presidential campaign that year). What about the 1-900-242-1611
used for Carter's call-in in 1977? Notice that BOTH of these involved
President Carter.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: The correct answer **should have been**
the 1977 call-in program. Someone should notify the producer of the
show and challenge his 'correct answer'. PAT]
