George Jennnings and the Jonesboro Tornado

Doug Ward sent us this!

Hi Bud -

I just noticed a YouTube video posted a couple of days ago by KAIT TV Channel 8 in Jonesboro -

What if the 1968 Jonesboro Tornado Happened Today?


To me, that news announcer sounds like George J. Jennings, so I'm passing this link along for your opinion.  Perhaps it was found in your archives?

Thanks for the excellent KAAY blog you are publishing.

best regards,
Doug Ward

Thanks, Doug, for the video and kind comment!


  1. Sure sounds like him to me!

  2. Yes, most certainly GJJ. That's from the 7:00 a.m. KAAY newscast the morning after that twister.

    That complete newscast should be included on the most recent batch of airchecks.
