Madeleine Brand offers a brief preview of Day to Day's additional coverage of former President Gerald Ford's death.


This is DAY TO DAY. I'm Madeleine Brand.


And I'm Noah Adams.

We're following today's top story, the death of President Gerald R. Ford. In a few minutes we'll talk with somebody who was quite close to Mr. Ford.

BRAND: He was the White House's photographer during Ford's presidency. David Hume Kennerly was his name. And before Kennerly took the job, he got the president to agree to give him full access, something that had never been done before.

Mr. DAVID HUME KENNERLY (Presidential Photographer, Ford Administration): I got in on everything. I have a top-secret clearance; I was in every NSC meeting. He was good for it. He's a man of his word and he let me into the chicken coop, basically.

ADAMS: Presidential photographer David Kennerly recalling President Gerald Ford. Stay with us for the full conversation with Kennerly. That's coming up in just a few minutes.
