WFAA-TV, the ABC affiliate in Dallas, on Nov. 22 will show two hours of its coverage of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. The coverage of the shooting marked a key step in the evolution of TV news, according to Brett Shipp, a WFAA reporter whose father, Bert Shipp, captured some of the footage 50 years ago. "It was the day that television news grew up," Brett Shipp said. "And Dallas during those days set the stage for what broadcast news is today."
