KFJZ CHANNEL 11 THREE NEWSROOM BULLETINS: ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, John Connally, James Altgens, Jack Bell, Lawrence OBrien, Albert Thomas, Father Oscar Huber, Bill Camfield
When President John F. Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963, Associated Press staffer James Altgens was photographing the motorcade, and became an eyewitness. His quick phone call to the AP's Dallas bureau became the first news bulletin about the shooting distributed across the AP's teletype setter circuit. Hours of frantic reporting followed, supplying newspapers and broadcasters with information as events unfolded. If news is the first draft of history, then these FIRST TEXTS OF EDITED raw wire copies of the rough ASSOCIATED PRESS first draft as voiced by a WPIX Channel 11 New York announcer (first two of three bulletins) remain more complete as content than announced by all other comparable television and radio bulletins.
The WPIX Channel 11 Newsroom bulletins archived in the collection Archival Television Audio, Inc. are different from every bulletin that is extant in museums or the scores of air checks playing on the internet, which are available to everyone who desires to download a personal copy. The following three KFJZ Channel 11 bulletins are unique in content, length and “drama,” adding completely new information (true and rumor) that no other bulletins or coverage offer.
The three original bulletins are a direct line recording, producing pristine sound. Total time for all three bulletins, 3 minutes 42 seconds.
Bulletin One - 1:52
“From the Channel 11 Newsroom. President Kennedy was shot today as his motorcade left downtown Dallas.
Latest report is that representative Albert Thomas of Texas says he has been informed at Parkland hospital
that both President Kennedy and Governor John Connally of Texas are still alive. Associated Press reporter Jack
Bell reports three shots were fired as the presidential motorcade entered a triple underpass in Dallas that leads to
the Stemmons Freeway. After the president was shot the secret service waved the motorcade on at top speed to
nearby Parkland hospital. The president was shot while moving along on the outskirts of Dallas. A presidential aide
Lawrence O’ Brien says he has no information on whether the president is alive. Texas governor John Connally was
also shot. It isn’t known if he is still alive. When the president was shot Mrs. Kennedy jumped up and grabbed him.
She cried “Oh No.” The secret service ordered the motorcade to speed on to nearby Parkland hospital. Associated Press
Reporter Jack Bell says the president and Connally were shot as the motorcade entered a triple underpass which leads to
the Stemmons Freeway. Bell said a man and woman were scrambling on the upper level of the walkway overlooking the
underpass. Mrs. Kennedy was weeping and trying to hold up her husband’s head. He fell face down in the back seat of the
car. The President was apparently shot in the head. He fell face down in the back seat of the car. Blood was on his head.
Governor Connally remained half seated slumped to the left. There was blood on his face and forehead. In Washington
the White House has said it has no information beyond the newsmen have at the scene. Both the President and Connally
were rushed to Parkland hospital. It’s located near the Dallas Trade Mart where the President was supposed to make a speech.
Even at high speed it took nearly five minutes to get the car to the ambulance entrance of the hospital.
Again, repeating the most recent information is that representative Albert Thomas of Texas says that he has been informed at
Parkland hospital that both President Kennedy and Governor Connally of Texas are still alive.
A bulletin from the channel 11 newsroom.”
Bulletin Two – :59
“Additional details from the Channel 11 Newsroom. A sniper shot President Kennedy and Governor John Connally of Texas in
U.S. representative Albert Thomas of Texas said that both were still alive in a hospital emergency room. Thomas standing outside
the corridor of the emergency room in which both Kennedy and Connally were under treatments said that he had been told that the
President was still alive but quote, “In very critical condition.” The secret service said that President Kennedy remained in the emergency
room and the Governor was moved to the general operating room of Parkland hospital. One secret service man was overheard telling
another that there was no need to move the President because emergency facilities were entirely adequate in the emergency room. Two Roman Catholic priests were summoned to the emergency room where the President lay. One was identified as a Father Huber.
Again, the President of the United States and the Governor of Texas shot by assassins in Dallas. Both conditions remain in critical condition.
Further details as they become available from the Channel 11 Newsroom.”
Bulletin Three - :51
“Bulletin from the Channel 11 Newsroom. An account carried on CBS Television is an unconfirmed report that the President is dead.
Repeating, this is an unconfirmed report as carried on CBS Television to the effect that the President is dead. No official confirmation of this report as yet. Earlier it was disclosed that a Negro boy in Dallas said he saw a man fire from the fourth floor of the schoolbook depository building at the corner of Elm and Houston Street in Dallas. Police went into that building and returned with one man. Police are reported to have gone back into the building for an additional search. The building is across from the Dallas County Court House at Elm and Houston Street.
Repeating the unconfirmed report. An account carried on CBS Television reports that the President is dead. Repeating that this is unconfirmed. Further details as they become available for the Channel 11 Newsroom.”
The uncertainty continues to be researched if these bulletins originated from WPIX Channel 11 (New York)...the announcer is not recognized, or quite possibly from station KFJZ Channel 11, now called KTVT Channel 11 (Fort Worth Texas and affiliated with the Dallas bureau for CBS NEWS).
KFJZ Channel 11 established a news department as an independent station in 1960. In 1963 news anchorman was Bill Camfield. Is it he who is heard announcing these bulletins?
Curiously, mentioned, during the third bulletin the announcer states that CBS NEWS has confirmed that President John F. Kennedy was dead. This author believes that the fact that KFJZ having had an affiliation with CBS all these years provides a clue as to possibly these bulletins emanated not from WPIX Channel 11 in New York, but from KFJZ TV Channel 11, broadcasting in Fort Worth Texas, near Dallas, where the assassination took place.
CBS FIRST LIVE BULLETIN AND LIVE COVERAGE OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY'S ASSASSINATION AND FUNERAL
Walter Cronkite, Harry S. Truman, Richard M. Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, Mike Wallace, Harry Reasoner, Robert Pierpoint, Dan Rather, Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Henry Whey, Roger Mudd, Nelson Benton, Eddie Barker, Eric Sevareid, John Connally, Lee Harvey Oswald, Charles Von Fremd, Lyndon B. Johnson
"As The World Turns," TV soap opera, is interrupted by Walter Cronkite at 1:40pm EST, who gives bulletins describing the attempt on the life of President John F. Kennedy. From KLRD in Dallas, Eddie Barker reports on the condition of the President: "He is dead... shot by an assassin." Cronkite continues coverage from the CBS Studio newsroom in New York; he confirms at 2:38pm EST that 38 minutes ago at 2:00 PM EST President Kennedy died. Cronkite has a difficult time composing himself and after a brief moment continues his report. CBS continuous coverage of the assassination begins with picture transmission at 2:00 PM EST and the following broadcast excerpts follow the events as they happened.
The facts reveal that Kennedy was shot at 1:30 PM EST and pronounced dead at 2:00 PM EST. The motorcade approached the Texas School Book Depository, and then made a sharp 135 degree left turn onto Elm Street, a downward-sloping road that extends through the plaza and under a railroad bridge at a location known as the "triple underpass." The giant Hertz Rent-a-Car clock on top of the Schoolbook Depository building was seen to change from 12:29 to 12:30 as the limousine turned into Elm Street.
Most of the witnesses recalled that the first shot was fired after the president had started waving with his right hand. After the third shot, the limo driver and police motorcycles turned on their sirens and raced at high speeds to Parkland Hospital, passing their intended destination of the Dallas Trade Mart along the way, and arriving at about 1:38 p.m. (EST).

A total of 395 minutes of coverage.
This Special TV and Radio audio air check, originally recorded off the air at the time during its original broadcast, November 24, 1963, is one of the two most rare and valued archived broadcasts in the over 20,000 titled Archival Television Audio, Inc. collection. Second only to Phil Gries’ off the air recording of Don Pardo’s first two NBC TV bulletins announcing the shooting of President JOHN F. KENNEDY and the initial 3 minutes and 53 seconds of NBC TELEVISION coverage NOT RECORDED (AUDIO OR VIDEO) BY NBC or any other affiliate station, person, or archive in the United States.

Only recently rediscovered, by ATA founder/owner Phil Gries, originally thought lost, this six hour and thirty-five-minute audio tape air check has been monitored for the following summaries and names / details that are contained related to assassination coverage of Lee Harvey Oswald as it unfolds in Dallas Texas. This broadcast recording is not linear, focusing on only one station, but audio recorded by many TV and Radio stations at the time of the actual events, randomly channel changing and searching for salient station coverage (“channel hopping)” from TV to Radio back to TV, back to Radio, etc. This only extant broadcast record is a true TIME CAPSUL RETROSPECTIVE FEELING OF EVENTS OF THE DAY AS THEY WERE HAPPING IN REAL TIME.…RECORDING OVER SIX & HALF HOURS of audio tape covering a NINE & HALF HOUR period of time related to covered broadcasting air time on November 24, 1963 form 2:00pm Eastern Standard Time, ending at approximately 11:35PM, Eastern Standard Time.
Five Radio Stations are recorded (WJRZ, WINS, WNEW, WRR, MUTUAL, KLIF), and six television stations are recorded (CBS, NBC, WNEW, WFAA, ABC, WNTA), disseminating the news as each broadcast station presents programming from varied locations. 108 individuals can be heard or mentioned, in different capacities…news reports, interviews, subjects under investigation, and individuals connected to Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. Interspersed, there continues to be coverage of today’s event of President John F. Kennedy who lies in state in the rotunda at the Capitol in Washington D.C.
NOTE: 85% of the 395 minutes contained in this air check are unique representing “lost” broadcasts representing coverage of the Oswald assassination as presented on television stations, CBS, NBC, ABC, WNEW, WFAA, WNTA, and radio stations, WJRZ, WINS, WNEW, MUTUAL. 15% of the radio and television RECORDINGS contained in this tape can be found on YouTube, and are archived by museums and television stations. However, 85% of the air checks contained in these originally audio taped recordings are a one of a kind broadcast record. To date no other resource of media recordings (TV / Radio) such as detailed below, moment to moment on different Radio and Television stations in real time sequence, has been found to exist in any broadcast or transcript form other than the following air checks contained in the Archival Television Audio, Inc. archive.
In 1993 a 49-minute CD, narrated by Reid Collins of WNEW Radio News, was released containing highlights of media broadcast coverage related to the JFK assassination and additional news coverage Nov. 22 -25, 1963. Included in the ten different clips are a 6:34 audio tape recording (edited version) of Ike Pappas audio tape coverage at the scene as Jack Ruby shoots Lee Harvey Oswald. Included in this ATA air check is over one and half additional minutes of original audio coverage by Ike Pappas and additional on the air live post commentary and reporting by Pappas communicated back to Jim Van Sickle anchoring at station WNEW 1130 AM in New York.
The only other extant radio / television coverage of the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald are You Tube postings recorded by station KLIF- Dallas Radio at 12:18pm (EST) which begins after the shooting, prior to Oswald being transported by ambulance to Parkland hospital. It is interesting to note seen in this footage, recorded by station KRLD-TV, reporter Ike Pappas walks with his audio tape recorder over his left shoulder and gets into line, (only twelve seconds prior to Lee Harvey Oswald appearing, and being shot) with other reporters. Unknown to Pappas, Jack Ruby, stands in line, only a few feet away to his left. Also archived is NBC TV coverage with Tom Pettit reporting the shooting on live television, including KRLD, WFAA, and NBC TV coverage, AUDIO ONLY of the assassination. Note: all the above extant air checks are excerpts, some brief.

2 hours and 54 minutes after Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald, on air anchor Jim Van Sickle states, “As reporter Ike Pappas, on the scene, described earlier most vividly, police are now holding night club owner Jack Ruby with the killing of Lee Harvey Oswald who was denying to the last minute his involvement killing the President. Police had checked out everybody including Jack Ruby.”
Jim Van Sickle then reminds his listening audience, “By way of a tape recording, reporter Ike Pappas describes the moment Oswald was shot. He was standing just 6 feet from Oswald when Ruby fired his pistol. In fact, he wondered himself whether he had been shot. Pappas called in to WNEW immediately and relayed his report.”
Jim Van Sickle replays the entire tape recording that Ike Pappas had made which was originally played earlier in the broadcast.
“We have a prisoner wearing a black sweater. He has changed from his T-Shirt. He’s being brought out toward an armored car, being led out by Captain Fritz.”
As Oswald nears Pappas IKE PAPPAS moves his right hand holding his microphone and asks LEE HARVEY OSWALD,
“Do you have anything to say in defense?”
IMMEDIATELY, A SHOT RINGS OUT as JACK RUBY shoots Oswald. Pappas continues to roll tape and we hear him describe the chaotic scene. “Oswald has been shot. There is a great deal of confusion at the moment. One of the wildest scenes I have ever seen,” exclaims, Ike Pappas.

“Just after learning that Oswald had died Jack Ruby is being held in the 4th floor jail under extremely heavy guard. Latest development has been C.A. Droby, Jack Ruby’s attorney has arrived. He states that Ruby has been brooding and emotional ever since the President was shot. More and more he has been thinking about avenging the death of the president. Detective C.H. “Billy’ Combest stood opposite Ruby and saw the gun come out of the jacket of Ruby and saw the TV lights against the gun. Combest screamed, “JACK YOU S.O.B. DON’T DO IT.”
Pappas further reports “At the moment a press briefing is being held. In retrospect since Friday night Jack Ruby has had total access at headquarters here. An incredible thing for a man who is not a policeman.”
Ike Pappas continues to tell Jim Van Sickle, “Attorney C.A. Droby’s wife received a phone call from a man with a foreign accent and stated that he will be the next one shot.” Police chief Jesse Curray is following up on all leads whether this assassination is an organized plot or a one-man act? “
Back at the WNEW 11:30 radio studio, anchor Jim Van Sickle states, “Ike Pappas reporting from Dallas Texas doing a magnificent job.”
WNEW radio report is heard from science editor Earl Ubell who states that Jack Ruby shot Oswald with a 38-caliber gun. Also stated, “…frenetic efforts of surgeon and doctors to save Oswald’s life at any cost. However, the bullet penetrated the aorta and Oswald had no chance of surviving.”

Jim Van Sickle summarizes the events of the day, including how Jack Ruby entered the police precinct. Again, a replay of Ike Pappas’ tape recorder continuing to record the assassination and aftermath. Pappas states that since 1953 Jack Ruby has had a police record. Pappas interview with police at a press conference, Captain John Fritz confirms to Pappas that Oswald alone assassinated the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. Asked if Oswald said anything before his own assassination, Fritz says, “No.”
Back at the WNEW- RADIO STUDIO, Ike Pappas communicates with anchor Jim Van Sickle. He states that on Friday night (November 23rd) he met Jack Ruby who befriended him and gave him his card. Ruby told Pappas that if he had any trouble getting news out of the police to just call him.
Jim Van Stickle states that:
“ Ike Pappas, who almost got in the way of that bullet directed at shooting Oswald was on the wire to WNEW within minutes of the shooting. At that point Ruby had been hustled off into the courthouse to be questioned. The police had not yet officially divulged the name of the shooter and in proper fashion Pappas had refrained in telling us just who it was and what kind of man he was. Here in New York, we had received a FLASH that it was Jack Ruby. I told Pappas, ‘Ike, we just received word that they have named the killer.’ ‘What is his name asked Pappas?’ “Jack Ruby,” I said. And, then Ike Pappas said this:
“Now I have just reached into my pocket when you said Jack Ruby, and I pull out a card called the Carousel Club. Now is this official, Jim, from the police department here?”
Van Sickle responds, “Yes, this has been reported here.”
Ike Pappas, “OK, on the basis of that I will continue. The Carousel Club located at 131 &1/2 Commerce Street; Dallas Texas is a club which puts on continuous shows. Glamourous Girls, Girls, Girls. And at the bottom of the card, it says ‘Your Host Jack Ruby.’ Apparently, this man, Jack Ruby, that you just told me about, and I was reluctant to release his name because it did not come out officially, runs this night club the Carousel Club. Now, the other night as I said, it struck me as extremely unusual to have this man, who is not a policeman, come up to me after the brief press conference we had with Oswald, who mumbled that he had not killed the President, and the police on Friday. This man, Jack Ruby had straight black hair with a bald spot on the top of his head. He is angular thin. He has a dark thick beard. He speaks in short, fleeting sentences. He knows the police very well here. Apparently, some of his best friends are on the police force. And, he had access to that room. He was running freely. As a matter of fact, when I wanted to talk to the District Attorney of Dallas, the equivalent of Louis Lefkowitz, the State attorney General of New York State, this man Jack Ruby went over, and he talked to him and told him this reporter wants to talk to you. And Jack Ruby brought this District Attorney over to me and got him on the phone. So, here as you tell us, Jack Ruby who I didn’t want to mention to you apparently has shot Lee Oswald.”

“Watch the reporter holding the microphone on the right of your TV screen (referring to WNEW reporter, Ike Pappas). A flash bulb goes off, and the assailant steps into the picture in front of Oswald and fires. Another flashbulb goes off. Oswald winces and falls to the ground. Police immediately grab the man, the assailant identified as Jack Ruby, the man accused of killing Lee Harvey Oswald.
ABC’s Bill Lord reports form Dallas police headquarters on the 3rd floor.
He states that the transfer of Oswald was scheduled for 10AM (Central Time), but it occurred shortly after 11AM (11:21AM).
“This advanced publicity might have been a contributing factor. The presence of the News Media encouraged the police to cooperate fully. They thought of getting Oswald out a back door. But they decided not to. They wanted to cooperate. No one can write history. But we can all hope the lessons learned here in Dallas during the past three days will teach us something. History will not again be written by assassins.”
Lord continues, “Oswald was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital to emergency room 2 after being shot, trauma room 2 just a few feet from emergency room 1 where President Kennedy had died, almost exactly 2 days before these unbelievable events occurred.

Dr. MARTIN LUTHER KING:
“This has been an extremely sad moment, and I am grief stricken.” He further states, “We should realize that President Kennedy was a victim of a development which has made hatred and violence a sought of popular pastime in all too many quarters of our nation. And I think that we are challenged to work with new vigor to rid the nation of all of the conditions that can make such a great tragedy, and an act like this, possible.” King also expresses his thoughts related to our new President Lyndon Johnson, and future Civil Rights legislation.

At 11pm Eastern Standard time, Frank Mc Gee, at NBC Studio Headquarters, introduces a replay of a broadcast televised in the UK last night (November 23rd) THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS. Richard Dimbleby joins McGee and after the complete program is broadcast Dimbleby mentions some facts about the host of this new satirical TV series hosted by, unknown in the USA, David Frost.
Frank McGee summarizes. “One of the remarkable things, this is a program that has devoted itself until now to the slicing political of figures, to ridiculing movements and ideas, and bringing to bear the weapon of wit. To destroy the pompous and to lay low the evil. This time they chose to make a program that gave tribute to the President of the United States. For me it was both flattering and reassuring to find that foreigners cand find us so well, and to put into words so aptly what so many of us have felt. Shattering, because it shows what they could make of our weaknesses. Reassuring, in that what they had chosen to make in a moment of sorrow.”

TOMORROW SHOW WITH TOM SNYDER, THE
Tom Snyder, Jacqueline Onassis, Jacqueline Kennedy, Larry Flynt
October 15, 1973-January 28, 1982.
Tom Snyder's guest is Larry Flynt, publisher of the pornographic magazine HUSTLER which was first released to the public in July 1974. Charged in February of 1977 with obscenity and organized crime ties, he was tried in Cincinnati and convicted of all charges, although the verdict was later overturned on appeal due to allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and judicial and jury bias.
In this little known rare interview given prior to an assassination attempt on his life (March 6, 1978) which left him paralyzed and wheel chair bound for the rest of his life, Snyder is very probing. Flynt, later joined by his attorney, discusses his current court case and explores the subject of the first amendment and what is the right to publish and what is not is the right to publish, including graphic pornography without government censorship, and the distribution of pornography, including the August 1975 Hustler publication of nude photos of Jacqueline Onassis which host Tom Snyder expresses his objection.
The question here is freedom of the press, the press being a smut magazine which manages to offend more people than all its competitors (Penthouse, Screw, Playboy) combined.
Perhaps these are the qualities which made the rare Flynt's appearance on the Tomorrow Show the prize of late night television. In an interview taped soon after Larry Flynt's Cincinnati conviction, Tom Snyder, demanded to know how Flynt could publish a magazine which so egregiously corrupted the minds of readers. Flynt reminded Snyder that experts (most notably the recent Commission on Obscenity and Pornography) had not been able to establish the link between reading obscenity and committing obscene acts. If in fact pornography is dangerous, mused Flynt, just contemplate the ravaged minds of all the psychologists and assistant D.A.'s who spend forty hours a week perusing the stuff. Snyder was not deterred: what of the people who are not "mature" enough to realize that Hustler is for the most part an indulgence in sexual fantasy, the few people who in fact might read Hustler and take some of its perversity not only to heart but out to the streets as well? Flynt shook his head with blustery impatience. "I don't publish a magazine for the mentally ill," he replied.
NOTE: This "lost" broadcast, which is not extant in any broadcast form in any of the major archives (Paley Center, NBC News, UCLA Film & TV Archive, Museum of Broadcasting, Library of Congress) other than this complete ATA TV Audio Air Check was not advertised as scheduled.. It replaced the original regularly scheduled broadcast advertised with guest Monte Hall. Tom Snyder discusses the circumstances behind this last minute change and states that the Monte Hall program, recorded on February 18th will be aired on March 11th (AM EST). Also scheduled guest California congressman Robert Dorman does not have the chance to appear as the entire program is centered on Larry Flynt.
NOTE: Snyder begins the show mentioning that this broadcast is to be the final one from studio 6A Rockefeller Center from where he did his first show October 15, 1973. A nostalgic sad farewell.
An hour-long talk show hosted by Tom Snyder. Network television's first entry into late-late-night programming on weeknights Monday thru Thursday, usually broadcasting on tape 1 AM to 2 AM. "Tomorrow" was expanded to 90 minutes on September 16, 1980.
