The Story: Veterans Day Special (narrated by Alec Baldwin)

Broadcast: November 8, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

This immersive Veterans Day one hour special is narrated by Alec Baldwin and uncovers the backstories of six veterans who have built companies, products and brands that have changed the way we live. 


You’ll hear from war heroes like the actress, turned spy who worked as a double agent for the Union Army, and the gruff Air Force Veteran who became a soft-spoken national treasure.

Veterans featured include: 

  • Artist, Bob Ross
  • Civil War spy, Pauline Cushman
  • Radio personality, Robin Quivers
  • FedEx founder, Fred Smith
  • WWII hero, Virginia Hall
  • Nike founder, Phil Knight
