Description:
 It’s November 22, 1963 and you have just arrived home for lunch and decide to watch your favorite television program. You notice that your show is not on, instead a news bulletin from CBS News has just flashed up on your screen. Reporter Walter Cronkite is reading information to his audience when he suddenly gets a news flash. He states:
“From Dallas Texas the flash apparently official President Kennedy died at 1:00 p.m. central standard time, 2:00 eastern standard time some 38 minutes ago.”
“Vice President Lyndon Johnson has left the hospital in Dallas but we do not know to where he has preceded presumably he will take the oath of office shortly and become the thirty-sixth President of the United States.”
These were the words that riveted America. As soon as they were announced everything stopped. For the next four days the country was plunged into total mourning.
Jim Gibbons will relook at this most tragic time in our nation’s history, presenting “The Kennedy Assassination.” If you were alive at that time you may remember where you were and what you were doing that fateful day in Dallas. If not, you will learn how everything came to a complete halt with just four words “The President is dead!”REGISTER
