NBC re-airing Martin Luther King Jr. interview

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC News says it will rebroadcast a 1963 “Meet the Press” interview with Martin Luther King Jr. in honor of the March on Washington’s 50th anniversary next week.

King appeared on the news program three days before his landmark “I Have a Dream” speech at the Aug. 28, 1963, civil rights march.

“‘Meet the Press’ Special Edition: Remembering the Dream” will air Sunday on 10 NBC-owned stations and on New England Cable News and a number of NBC affiliates. Most stations will air it immediately before or after the regularly scheduled episode of “Meet the Press” (check local listings).

The half-hour interview with King and NAACP leader Roy Wilkins will air in full, a half-century to the day after its original showing. It will be available online afterward.
