Here & Now tracks the events of the Kennedy Assassination in real time Friday afternoon on 89.7 NPR News.

In an interesting take on the JFK assassination anniversary on Friday, NPR’s Here & Now will track the events in Dallas on November 22, 1963 in close to real time.  The series of special reports starting at noon and continuing to 4 pm on 89.7 NPR News will mirror the news as it was reported on that Friday 50 years ago.

89.7 NPR News will preempt Fresh Air, On Point, and Science Friday for this special and include a series of first person memories of that day from central Ohioans.  If you were alive (and I was in second grade), you recall where you were that fateful day.  Please tune in.
