AN ABC NEWS EXCLUSIVE TELEVISION EVENT: "JACQUELINE KENNEDY: IN HER OWN WORDS"

ABC News to Air a Two-Hour Special with Diane Sawyer Reporting, Tuesday, September 13 at 9:00 p.m., ET

Reports to Coincide with the Publication of Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy

On TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, viewers for the first time will hear actual interviews that former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy recorded for history in an ABC News special with Diane Sawyer reporting. "Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words" will air from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET on the ABC Television Network, and will feature Sawyer's exclusive interview with Caroline Kennedy.

These never-before-heard interviews, which Jacqueline Kennedy recorded soon after her husband's death, have remained strictly sealed - until now. The more than eight hours of official audio recordings were made with one of America's most respected historians, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. From that point on, the famously private former First Lady steadfastly refused to publicly discuss her memories of those years. The ABC News special coincides with the September 14th publication of the book, Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy, which contains unedited and complete recordings of the oral history interviews.

The revealing conversations include Jacqueline Kennedy's impressions of life with her husband, President John F. Kennedy, their life in the White House, and the extraordinary events that shaped the Kennedy Administration and the world -- from their early years on the campaign trail to the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs and the President's last days in the White House. The interviews also reflect Mrs. Kennedy's evolving sense of herself and her role as First Lady, as she talks about her family, world leaders and life in the White House.

Throughout the week, reports will air across all ABC News broadcasts and platforms including "World News with Diane Sawyer," "Good Morning America," "Nightline" and "This Week with Christiane Amanpour." Coverage will also appear on ABC News Radio, ABC News NOW, and NewsOne, the network's affiliate service. ABCNews.com has launched a special webpage that will highlight the historic events of the Kennedy administration that are discussed by Mrs. Kennedy in the audio tapes.

Eric Avram and David Sloan are the executive producers of "Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words."
