Listen To KERA's Special Program 'The 50th: Remembering John F. Kennedy'
The 50th: Remembering John F. Kennedy was KERA's live, two-hour special covering the official commemoration event at Dealey Plaza in Dallas on Nov. 22, 2013.
Hosted by Krys Boyd and Shelley Kofler, the special includes reports from KERA reporters before the ceremony begins.
Bells tolled across the city, and the event featured historian David McCullough, who read from Kennedy’s presidential speeches; Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings; religious leaders; the U.S. Naval Academy Men’s Glee Club; and a moment of silence.
The special is divided into two parts. Part One includes coverage leading up to the ceremony, including stories from KERA reporters and live reports from Dealey Plaza. Part Two includes the full ceremony, including a wrap-up of the day's events. And for a recap of the event, check out KERA's live blog from that day.
