The Murrow Boys — News Broadcasting During WWII with Brian Belanger
Tuesday, March 23, 2021, 2:00 PM
From the National Capital Radio and TV Museum
“And now we take you to London.” The dramatic “hard news” of World War II broadcast live by Edward R. Murrow and the young journalists he hired for CBS changed the way listeners experienced current events.
This talk will describe Murrow and his colleagues and the way they reported the news, risking their lives to keep the world informed of events as they were happening — just as 50 years later CNN brought visual images of another war into our homes. You’ll also hear audio clips of those significant broadcasts that are sure to heighten our appreciation of their commitment to meaningful journalism.
