1987 interview with political journalist TOM WICKER on his memories and reflections of the day JFK was assassinated and about JFK in general
Wicker began working in professional journalism in 1949, as editor of the small-town Sandhill Citizen in Aberdeen, North Carolina. By the early 1960s, he had joined The New York Times. At the Times, he became well-known as a political reporter—one of the lead journalists for the paper's coverage of the assassination of President Kennedy—and a shrewd observer of the Washington, D.C. scene. In that capacity, his influential "In The Nation" column ran in the TImes from 1966 through 1992.
