The minutes, hours, and days after JFK was shot on November 22, 1963, provided no ready answers. For millions of Americans transfixed by the incomparable breaking news, television—for the first time—emerged as a way to keep informed. This book tells the story of four journalists who were at the epicenter; covering the assassination and its aftermath for Dallas’s KRLD.

This 50th anniversary edition includes new photos, insights, and reflections on the state of news (and faux news) today from the four men who were active participants in television news’ pivotal moment.
