Today I read a headline stating that Helen Wagner had died. She was a long-time cast member of “As The World Turns.”
When I saw the headline, my immediate reaction was to ask myself: Is it possible no one remembers that she was the cast member speaking on live television at the moment when Walter Cronkite interrupted the broadcast to announce JFK’s assassination?
This is Helen on November 22, 1963 close to the moment when Cronkite broke in with the announcement.
A very,very bad day. One of the worst.
