Hometown Boy Did Good

November 22, 1963

While we celebrate Thanksgiving today 55 years ago in Dallas Texas the WFAA news director was relaying a horrific story. John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. That director was none other than Bob Walker who covered and worked the story of Kennedy's assassination and then went on to New York and Washington to finish his remaining time as a newsman.

Bob Walker was originally from Minnesota but it was in Harrisburg Illinois, a little town where I am from, that Walker got his broadcasting career started. Bob took a job at WSIL - TV after attending school at SIU Carbondale. While such a grim day, we had seen yet another home town boy while adopted from another state that was doing good.
