ABC News to air unheard recollections from Jackie Kennedy

ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — ABC News is presenting never-before-heard recollections from Jacqueline Kennedy.

The network announced Wednesday that for the first time viewers will hear the former First Lady in conversations with historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. The recordings were made in the spring of 1964 and sealed until now.

A series of special reports will draw on these seven interviews totaling more than eight hours of audio recordings, in which Jackie Kennedy shared her impressions of life with her husband, President John F. Kennedy. The tapes were left to daughter Caroline Kennedy. Their release is timed to the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Administration.

The network says the centerpiece will be a special prime-time hour, with additional programs airing across all ABC News broadcasts and platforms this September. Diane Sawyer will anchor.
