Four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, bureau chief of both Newsweek and the Washington Times, and investigative team leader for ABC's 20/20, Hugh Aynesworth was a thirty-two-year-old reporter for the Dallas Morning News when JFK's visit to Dallas ended in tragedy. His coverage of the assassination, the trial of Jack Ruby, and the conspiracy flurry that followed earned him two Pulitzer nominations and recognition as one of the most respected authorities on the Kennedy assassination. His reporting of Martin Luther King's assassination, the 1993 Branch Davidian standoff and fire, and the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City marked his career advancement from a small-town sports editor to bureau chief. Aynesworth is the author or coauthor of seven books, including The Only Living Witness and Conversations with a Killer about serial murderer Ted Bundy. He has served as president of the Dallas Press Club and the Press Club Foundation and has won over seventy local, regional, and national awards. Hugh Aynesworth lives in Dallas with his wife Paula, a sales executive at KERA and KXT North Texas Public Media.
