Lisa McCubbin is an award-winning journalist. As the Live Reporter for both the CBS and ABC affiliates, she was adept at covering everything from education to sports to politics and was eventually chosen to host Bakersfield’s most watched morning news program, as co-anchor of NBC’s Sunrise, the two-hour show prior to Today with Katie Couric and Matt Lauer. During the 2000 election, she landed an exclusive one-on-one interview with then Governor George W. Bush, and covered the election through the Florida voting debacle. In the aftermath of the attacks on 9/11, McCubbin provided compelling reports to KGET-TV (NBC) as a foreign correspondent in Saudi Arabia. Later, as the Saudi government came under increasing Western media scrutiny, the Saudi Minister of Foreign Investment hired Lisa McCubbin as a media consultant to train leading business people and members of the Saudi government to deal with the Western press. She currently splits her time between the Middle East and Colorado with her husband and two teenaged sons.
Clint Hill is a former United States Secret Service agent who was in the presidential motorcade during the John F. Kennedy assassination. Hill remained assigned to Mrs. Kennedy and the children until after the 1964 presidential election. He then was assigned to President Lyndon B. Johnson at the White House. In 1967, when Johnson was still in office, he became the Special Agent in Charge (SAIC) of Presidential protection. When Richard Nixon came into office, he moved over to SAIC of protection of Vice President Spiro Agnew. Finally, Hill was assigned to headquarters as the Assistant Director of the Secret Service for all protection. He retired in 1975.
I found The Kennedy Detail was written and edited very well.
This is a wonderful book that gives readers a glimpse into the lives of the secret service agents in charge of protecting President Kennedy.
I do not consider myself a conspiracy nut by dismissing the findings of the fairy tale explanation offered up by the Warren Commission.
Very interesting book. I remember the Kennedy assignation, but this book has things that were not in the news then.Published 14 days ago by Patsy Wooldridge
