On November 22, 1963 time stood still as the nation and the world grappled with the sudden and tragic loss of an extraordinary leader. Now 50 years since that fateful day, we remember the life and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.

Dan Rather was on the scene in Dallas that day, reporting for Walter Cronkite and CBS News, and helped break the story we could not bear to hear. On the next Kalb Report, two legends of journalism, Dan Rather and Marvin Kalb discuss reporting the unthinkable and the profound impact of the events of that tragic day.

The Kalb Report is produced by the National Press Club Journalism Institute, the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, Harvard University's Shorenstein Center, University of Maryland University College (UMUC), and the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland. For the eleventh consecutive year, the series is underwritten by a grant from Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.

Moderator Marvin Kalb is Edward R. Murrow Professor Emeritus at Harvard's Kennedy School and Senior Advisor to the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. The executive producer of the series is Michael Freedman, UMUC senior vice president and GW professorial lecturer. The senior producer is Heather Date, UMUC associate vice president and GW alumna. Our series is directed by CBS News legend Robert Vitarelli.
