Broadcasting Trivia: President Kennedy Network Coverage

November 24, 2013

All three networks were stretched to the limit on personnel and equipment during the time of coverage of the shooting of President Kennedy. It was sign on till sign off on CBS and ABC, but NBC fed a live signal around the clock on Saturday and Sunday with a camera trained on President Kennedy’s casket lying in state at both the White House and Capital. The FCC was very liberal with sign on and sign off rules during this time with both TV and radio.
