Cronkite’s Kennedy Assassination Coverage as It Happened

Friday, November 22, 2013 - 11:40am to Monday, November 25, 2013 - 3:00pm

The Cronkite School is screening Walter Cronkite’s historic four-day coverage of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination starting on Friday at 11:40 a.m.

The stream will begin with CBS News’ first breaking news bulletin alerting viewers three shots had been fired in Dallas. The live stream will continue through the weekend and include the somber moment when Cronkite removed his horn-rimmed glasses and announced Kennedy’s death. The stream will conclude on Monday with coverage of the president’s funeral.

Prior to the start of Friday’s screening, the Cronkite School will show “JFK: One PM Central Standard Time,” a one-hour PBS documentary that recounts Cronkite’s coverage of the Kennedy assassination.
