An American Moment was a widely acclaimed syndicated program, created by James R. Kirk and Neal Spelce.

The show consisted of 90-second vignettes that focused on "small town America" and overlooked news stories. It was carried by over 70 stations throughout the United States.

The show's original host, Charles Kuralt, had come out of his retirement to fill the role as American Moment's lead talent. Kuralt would later be replaced by James Earl Jones, after his death in 1997. Jones would continue in the lead role throughout the remainder of the program, which ended in 1999.

"Charles Kuralt's American Moments" was published by Simon & Schuster in 1998, which contains a compilation of actual vignettes from Kuralt's An American Moment television program.
