The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was the first time television networks went wall-to-wall with nonstop coverage.

50 years ago on November 22, 1963, at 12:38 local time — CBS news started its live coverage and stayed on the air for four days.

You can watch that coverage — just as it aired 50 years ago — online.

From the moment legendary anchorman Walter Cronkite delivers the news that President JFK has died to broadcasts from Dallas, Washington, Chicago, and around the world.

CBS is streaming it in real time through the weekend. It will wrap up on Monday — ending with the president’s funeral.
