D-Day, June 6, 1944. What Americans heard back home.

In the early hours of June 6, 1944, radios across America came to life with the news everyone had been anticipating. The invasion of Europe had begun. One widely listened-to-broadcast was from the NBC Studios in New York by Robert St. John, the legendary journalist and also our long-time friend.  We are honored to again share the beginning of his D-Day Broadcast that day.

“This is the European Front. Once again being established in fire and blood.” — Robert St. John
