NBC News will air a primetime special remembering the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw will host the special, which will air 50 years to the day Kennedy was killed in Dallas.
“Tom Brokaw Special: Where Were You?” will air Friday, November 22 at 9 PM ET. It will feature interviews with a wide range of people, asking them how Kennedy’s death affected their lives, and speculating about what might be different had he not been shot.
NBC is planning additional programming tied to the anniversary. Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer will be in Dallas, with Guthrie talking to one of Kennedy’s Secret Service agents, and Lauer interviewing a woman whose photo has become an iconic part of that day. The morning of November 22, Brokaw will be joined on “Today” by former CBS News anchor Dan Rather, whose report that day is one of the most widely remembered. “Meet the Press” will air a half-hour special, featuring three interviews Kennedy gave to the Sunday public affairs program.
