"As The World Turns," TV soap opera, is interrupted by Walter Cronkite, who gives bulletins describing the attempt on the life of President John F. Kennedy. From KLRD in Dallas, Eddie Barker reports on the condition of the President: "He is dead... shot by an assassin." Cronkite continues coverage from the CBS Studio newsroom in New York; he confirms that 38 minutes ago at 2:00 PM EST President Kennedy died. Cronkite has a difficult time composing himself and after a brief moment continues his report. CBS continuous coverage of the assassination begins at 2:00 PM EST and the following broadcast excerpts follow the events as they happened. The facts reveal that Kennedy was shot at 1:25 PM EST and died 35 minutes later at 2:00 PM EST. At 2:38 PM, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in as the 36th President of the United States. Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas, adds additional information regarding the assassination. Eric Sevareid talks about Johnson, the 55-year-old new President. The physician to Texas Governor John Connally, who was also shot, discusses his condition. Further reports are telecast from Dan Rather in Dallas, Texas, who refers to a possible suspect, Lee Harvey Oswald. Harry Reasoner continues his live reporting from CBS News headquarters in New York. From Andrew Airforce Base in Maryland, Charles Von Fremd reports coverage of Lyndon B. Johnson's arrival at 5:58 PM EST. On this plane arrives the body of former President John F. Kennedy, his mourning wife and the newly sworn in President, Lyndon Baines Johnson, who gives a brief statement to the press and the public. Earlier in the day, Kennedy spoke in Ft. Worth. We hear his earlier speech. From KRLD in Dallas, Eddie Barker interviews the Mayor of Dallas, who reflects on this tragic day. On the street, interviews from a shocked Dallas community are reported by Nelson Benton. During the morning of Saturday, November 23, Mike Wallace and Dan Rather report. Rather profiles accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald is briefly interviewed. He denies shooting the President. There are comments from Martin Luther King Jr. and Harry S. Truman. Nelson Benton interviews the Dallas Chief of Police. There are requests that anyone who took pictures during the motorcade should come forward with evidence. Charles Von Fremd reports from Washington D.C., as does Robert Pierpoint. There is a brief statement from Richard M. Nixon. At police headquarters in Dallas, information is given as to the further interrogation of Lee Harvey Oswald by District Attorney Henry Whey. From Washington D.C., Roger Mudd reports from the rotunda where the bier which was originally built for Abraham Lincoln and which will support the coffin of JFK is being prepared. There is an interview with Judge Hughes who gave the oath of office to Lyndon Baines Johnson. She discusses the experience and reactions of LBJ and Jacqueline Kennedy. President Johnson addresses the people of the United States proclaiming Monday, November 25, a day of national mourning. From Houston and Elm Street in Dallas, directly across the street from where the assassination took place, Dan Rather describes the scene.
