Today marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most infamous moments in TV history – the O.J. Simpsons white Bronco chase. On June 17th, 1994, CNN and all the broadcast networks cut to the scene of Simpson in a white Bronco fleeing police to avoid murder charges.
NBC put the chase onto a split screen with Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Simpson and Al Cowlings, who was driving the Bronco, eventually returned to O.J.’s home and he surrendered to police.
Recently, Simpson officially joined Twitter, declaring he’s “got a lot of getting even to do”. Did you watch the Bronco chase live? What are some other TV moments that captured the nation’s attention?
