Posted by    |    September 30th, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Ijohn-f-kennedyn both life and death John F. Kennedy left an indelible social and political impact on America, particularly in media. He was the first president to allow presidential press conferences to be broadcast live and he and his wife Jacqueline Kennedy were both known for influencing fashion trends as well as being subjects of numerous photo spreads in popular magazines. This was new level of influence that politicians before the Kennedys had not experienced.

This Wednesday night in honor of the upcoming 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, legendary Dallas journalist Hugh Aynesworth offers us an even deeper insight into how John F. Kennedy affected media not only through his life but through his death as well. Aynesworth will introduce and moderate a panel discussion  entitled “How the JFK Assassination Changed North Texas Media.” As a reporter for the Dallas Morning News Aynesworth covered the whirlwind of events that followed Kennedy’s  assassination and his experience will give the audience fascinating insight into what media was like before his assassination, what it was like after and how this historical event is still affecting North Texas media today.
