Abstract:

As news director and anchor of KRLD-TV, Channel 4, then the CBS affiliate in Dallas, Eddie Barker stationed himself at the Trade Mart where Kennedy was to speak. Of course, the president never arrived. And so, Barker found himself ad-libbing on the air, knowing that something terrible had happened but not exactly sure of what it was. When a doctor acquaintance from nearby Parkland Hospital whispered the awful news in his ear, Eddie made what has been called "the greatest snap evaluation of a source in broadcasting history." Eddie Barker became the first reporter to announce to America that John F. Kennedy was dead.
