News is immediate today. Here's how TV reacted behind-the-scenes to PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S assassination 50 years ago (Were you watching)?
1:25pm in New York. CBS was 1st to report, only because WALTER CRONKITE was eating at his desk! NBC grabbed DON PARDO (future SNL) minutes later. NBC was 1st with reporters on camera--CHET HUNTLEY, FRANK MCGEE, & BILL RYAN in New York, on the phone with young ROBERT MACNEIL in Dallas. By 2pm ABC had 1st live report from Dallas.         
               
Marilyn Barranti I remember very vividly.. I was in 8th grade gym class when the loud speaker came on to inform us...watched every day after school and cried when little John John saluted !!
Ken Stout I was 5 years old at the time. I remember seeing the funeral coverage and being upset that it cancelled out the cartoons.
Michael Jaski They sent us home early from school. It was a rainy day in Chicago. I remember sitting in front of the TV.
