Description
Episode Description
This is presentation about the KERA series News Day. It starts with a brief overview of the series' history, and then showcases what KERA sees as one of their strongest episodes. The first example is from January 3rd. The House Assassinations Committee issued its findings that Lee Harvey Oswald had not acted alone in assassinating President Kennedy. Newsday featured an in-depth interview with Louis Stokes, chairman of the House Assassinations Committee, live from Washington via satellite; as well as FBI agent Robert Gemberling, who disagrees with that finding. Next is an August 28 episode featuring an interview with House Majority Leader Jim Wright on what he sees as the media's adversarial approach to reporting. Grimes mentions a story about DFW International Airport; no clip is shown. Next is an interview with Dallas School Board member Jerry Bartos about the Board's financial scandal. The next example shows business analyst David Johnson moderating a panel discussion about a speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker. Following these examples is the complete broadcast of October 29, 1979 covering the Supreme Court Case Tasby v. Estes which dealt with the desegregation of Dallas public schools. Tom Grimes reports from Washington. Suzanne Weber gives the background of the case. Grimes interviews attorney Ed Cloutman; moderates a panel with school board member Robert Medrano, Board of Education president Robert Lapsley, and Yvonne Ewell, associate superintendent of the East Oak Cliff subdistrict; and interviews Eddie MitchelL Tasby, the man who filed the desegregation suit nine years earlier.
Series Description
"NEWS DAY is a weeknightly news analysis program in which three or four stories are examined in depth, usually in studio or in studio remotes in which KERA is interconnected with another PBS station via satellite. "Under the format, the moderator of the program introduces a story, backgrounds that story for the audience, then explores through interviews the essential elements of the story."--1979 Peabody Awards entry form.
