This Video has audio only.
The famous photo shows NBC reporter Tom Pettit with a tan trench coat and microphone.

The Pettit family were our neighbors in LA at the time, and Mr Pettit was on assignment in Dallas after the President had been shot and we all knew it.
One of his daughters was my good friend. His older daughter went into journalism with NBC too. Upon Mr. Pettits death, he left all his Journalism Letters with the University of Iowa’s Rod Library.
