50 years later: broadcaster remembers JFK assassination


EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) - It's been called the Age of Camelot. Some call it the end of a nation's innocence. Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination.

It's a day that, those alive, all remember when and where they were when they heard the news. But no one remembers November 22, 1963 more than the people charged with telling the nation.

One broadcaster, who spent the last 27 years of his career in Eau Claire, said regardless of how he felt, that day, he had a job to do.

"The music on the radio at that time was a song called "Everyday You've Gotta Cry Some." From then on, we didn't play anymore rock-n-roll," Marty Green, who was on-air with WORG at the time of the assassination, says.
