KMOX? or KMOV? Turn to News promo. "Watch for St. Louis, We are on the Move"

 

This was the image that was used when the call sign change happened in 1986. Looks like the whole thing was being phased in...the channel has a bump that's from May 16 (not 26) with this slogan and the KMOX-TV calls!

As the World Turns & CBS News on that day in Dallas, 59 years ago today

In eerily similar fashion, President Reagan's shooting would interrupt ATWT 18 years later. Cant find the video of this anymore.

 

ABC News coverage isnt really talked about but here is their summation of events:

When BREAKING NEWS was meaningful and meant something...where the world changes forever. It broke into regular programming. It made the world stand still. Made you drop what you were doing and pay attention. Shocked the sh--t out of you.

 

JFK assassination in 1963 was one of those Breaking News stories where the world changed forever, along with several others: 1986 Challenger Explosion, Sept 11 attacks on World Trade Center in 2001, near assassination of President Reagan in March 1981.

Agreed. CBS News Sunday morning actually used the JFK assassination in a report to display the overuse of breaking news versus actual breaking news.
