ABOUT THE SHOW

We interrupt this broadcast: before it was history, it was news, hosted by legendary broadcaster Bill Kurtis and narrated by Brian Williams, is a journey through the history of both broadcast journalism and America itself, by revisiting the dramatic “where were you when?” moments.  The stories of each episode are told by the broadcasters and tv journalists who covered them and it’s a “who’s who” among broadcasters and tv journalists.  It’s also the first time all the major broadcast and cable news networks have permitted the use of their news audio.

“It’s that sense of being part of something bigger than ourselves. What is interesting is that besides friends from here in the States, I’ll be hosting friends from various parts of the world, from England to Mexico to Brazil and, yet, the images of the fiery Hindenburg, the moon landing, or the tumbling Berlin wall is something that at least one of us sitting around the table eating turkey will have a memory to share from one or more of the major events from the book.”
