NBC News will rerun the August 25, 1963 broadcast of its Sunday Beltway show Meet The Press this Sunday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The broadcast featured an interview with Martin Luther King Jr, three days before he delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial; the episode will be broadcast in its entirety, except for the tease for the next week’s episode — in ’63 (check out a clip below). Meet the Press Special Edition: Remembering The Dream will air on NBC’s 10 owned-and-operated stations, New England Cable News, and numerous NBC affiliates. As of now, nearly 80 stations, covering more than 62% of the country, were on board. but in most places it will preempt local news or local political affairs shows. In most markets, the half-hour program will air immediately before or after the regularly scheduled broadcast of Meet The Press; viewers should check local listings for exact times. The regularly scheduled Meet The Press, anchored by David Gregory, also will be devoted to the anniversary of the March. Just three days before delivering his iconic speech, King joined Meet The Press to discuss the march’s call for civil rights legislation, jobs, freedom, and social equality.
