Today in News History:
On the morning of Nov. 24, 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President Kennedy, was shot and killed by nightclub owner Jack Ruby in the basement of the Dallas police headquarters. About 93 percent of NBC viewers saw the shooting live on television. Oswald was rushed to Parkland Hospital — where doctors tried to save President Kennedy’s life just days before — but succumbed to his injury at 1:07 p.m. CST.
