As you’ve seen on cable this afternoon- Senator Kennedy and family are motorcading to Boston from Hyannis. The approximate arrival time is 4pm at the JFK Library. The Senator will lie in repose at the library from 6pm on.
TVNewser has compiled the following network coverage plans:
• ABC’s Charlie Gibson will anchor portions of the motorcade in special reports as well as “World News” from the JFK library in Boston.
• CBS will have a live special report when the motorcade arrives in Boston, but could feature break-ins earlier. The special report will be anchored by Russ Mitchell in New York. Tonight, Katie Couric will host “Evening News” from Boston.
• NBC tells TVNewser that, for the most part, MSNBC will cover the daytime events. On “Nightly News,” Lester Holt will anchor from the Kennedy Library with Andrea Mitchell, Kelly O’Donnell and Mike Taibbi reporting.
