Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa IO The ( rriar Rapids Ciazelte: Tri., August 9, 1974 Television loden Bv Jay Sharbutt Nowlin Taken fo Reformatory; Suffered Cut Nose in Scuffle Regional YMCA Leader Training 130 Million Watched Nixon Resign NEW YORK IAP) - Pres-irlent Nixon, who in 1952 salvaged his then-young political career through national radio and TV’, has ended it the same way before an American viewing audience NRC estimated would total 130 million. And the major TV networks which junked all their Thursday night programs to air the historic story of his resignation, Friday resumed their live coverage of the somber transfer of power from Nixon to Vice-president Gerald R. Ford. CBS, NRC and ABC all said they were televising live coverage Friday and Friday night of major events. CBS News says it is airing live TV coverage of Nixon's departure from the White House, starting at 9:24 a.m. EDT. and Ford’s swearing-in at 11:54 a.m. EDT. ABC and NBG announced similar schedules. * * * The Public Broadcasting Service, serving 246 public TV stations, said it was airing a 34-hour special on the resignation at 8 p.m. EDT. Nixon’s speech was carried live by the nearly 650 TV stations and 2,700 radio stations comprising the three networks. public broadcasting and the Mutual Broadcasting System. On Sept. 23, 1952. when he made his famous “Checkers" speech, only NBC televised the 30-minute address — seen by an estimated 50 million viewers. CBS and Mutual aired it on radio. His Thursday night speech climaxed a frenzied day for all broadcasters, a day punctuated by some 20 midday or afternoon bulletins and updates that persistently jabbed into network game shows and soap operas. * * * The networks’ intensive planning for coverage of the expected resignation didn’t hit high gear until Wednesday, although all had been preparing various film and tape “packages" on Nixon, Ford and others for some months. NBC and CBS declined to say how long. But ABC said it had begun in November 1973 and had a three-inch-thick book of previously prepared film and tape stories — updated right until special news coverage started at 7:30 p.m. EDT. All three filled the time before Nixon's 9 p.m. EDT speech with recapitulations of the day’s events, live reports from Layfayette Park across the street from the White House and various analyses. ABC had planned an ambitious prespeech series of live ‘‘remotes’’ from Times Square to Hong Kong. But while the spirit was willing the electronics were weak. ABC's opening live report from Times Square went silent due to a bad phone line Mike Connell.

After the speech, all three networks aired live reports assessing the public mood — but offering surprisingly few man-in-the-street interviews. All broadcast live coverage of Ford’s brief speech to newsmen outside his home in Alexandria, Va. Public TV, which stuck mainly to the studio, except for a Lay-Fayette Park “remote.” didn't air the Ford speech live. Interviews with various political figures flashed on and off the network TV screens throughout the night, which for CBS ended at about 12:30 a.m. and NBC and ABC about 90 minutes later ed to the men’s reformatory at by two [.inn county deputies.    asked    the    jury    if    they had It was a solemn jurv that r°-,"hPard ^ hunters being ac-turned the verdict against.Now- cidcWaliy shot -tin.
