#556: NBC'S FIRST LIVE BULLETINS AND LIVE COVERAGE OF THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
1963-11-22, WNBC 123 min.
David Brinkley, Chet Huntley, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Frank McGee, John F. Kennedy, Irving R. Levine, Charles Murphy, Don Pardo, Barry Goldwater, Richard Valeriani, Charles Brehm, Bill Ryan, Robert MacNeil, Jeff Pond, Tom Whalen

These first live NBC News Bulletins by Don Pardo would precede regular program cancellations and continuous NBC live coverage of this 20th century tragedy (the assassination of President John F. Kennedy) for the next three and a half days. The first two bulletins are heard. Bulletin number one (Local in NYC) is broadcast at 1:45:03 PM EST and airs for 30 seconds. Bulletin number two (National) is broadcast at 1:46:42 and airs for 68 seconds, followed by the first two hours of uninterrupted News coverage with NBC anchors Bill Ryan, Chet Huntley and Frank McGee. Seventy-one hours and twenty-seven minutes of continuous coverage begins on NBC at 1:53 PM with CBS and ABC both starting their live continuous coverage at 2 PM. There are live telephone reports from correspondent Robert MacNeil in Dallas, Texas. There are additional reports from Charles Murphy, David Brinkley and Marvin Agronsky. There is live coverage from the United Nations where the Secretary General expresses sorrow to all members of the Kennedy Family and to all the people in the United States. One minute of silence is observed by all delegates from the 111 member nations. There is continuing NBC coverage from station WBAP, the affiliate in Fort Worth, Texas with Newsman Tom Whalen. Eyewitness Charles Brehm recounts what he saw. There is the first live overseas report from Irving R. Levine from Rome and live coverage from outside the NBC building at Rockefeller Center, with its Mobile Unit searching out reactions from New Yorkers with reporter Jeff Pond. Correspondent Richard Valeriani reports live from the White House. There are statements from Senator Barry Goldwater and from former President, Dwight D. Eisenhower. It took an incident of this proportion to catapult television into the forefront as the world's number one communicator of news and special events. Television had come of age. NOTE: The first two NBC Television Bulletins and the initial 3:53 seconds of continuous coverage commencing at 1:53 PM EST was never recorded by NBC or archived by any other source. Amazingly, the only existing recording in the world of this historical television broadcast was audio recorded off the air by Archival Television Audio, Inc. during the actual live Television Broadcast. To date, no other audio or video has ever surfaced documenting these moments. These historic sound tracks have been donated to the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, MA, and to The Library of Congress in Washington D.C. The November 22, 1963 John F. Kennedy NBC-TV assassination bulletins and the initial lost 3:53 seconds of NBC live coverage are the most significant treasure in our archive. They personify just a part of the many thousands of other Archival Television Audio original, off the air, television soundtracks which represent the only record of a specific TV broadcast known to exist.
