Here’s How News Broke In The ‘Old Days’

Lyndon Baines Johnson was President of the United States from November 22, 1963 until January of 1969.

Johnson passed away on January 22, 1973.

It this classic news clip, Walter Cronkite reports the news live to the nation.

But perhaps what is more interesting than watching the historic reporting on the death of a President is the technology that was utilized in getting that report and relaying it live to the nation.

For the younger people, I know you must be asking ‘What is that thing with a cord on it that old guy is holding to the side of his head?’

Well, it was called a telephone.  No, not a mobile device and not a cell phone.  believe it or not, it was one of the ways we communicated ‘back in the day’!
