Oprah Watched the OJ Verdict with an Audience, Lincoln Declared a Holiday and TV Launched Captain Kangaroo and Mickey Mouse

From Tuesday’s “Pure Opelka” podcast, Mike takes us back to October 3, 1995, the day the OJ Simpson trial for the murder of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman ended.

In addition to the not guilty verdicts in the double murder case, Opelka reminds us of the curious side effect of the OJ trial…the death of soap operas dominating daytime television.

  1. I was a journalist at the time, watching on TV’s in the newsroom. I knew he would be found not guilty because I knew the prosecution hadn’t done its job. By the way, I still LOVE my soaps, GH and DAYS. I will always miss Capitol, ATWT, PC and OLTL.
