Details on The AP’s Royal Wedding Coverage

Friday is a big day for the media, as we’ve promised to finally showcase the picture of our dog with a mohawk. Kidding! It’s the Royal Wedding, and whether or not the United States people care about it doesn’t matter, the media is going to cover the hell out of it. Even New York TV stations are getting in on it.

Romenesko got a look at how the Associated Press is going to cover the wedding, and though the memo begins “Friday is royal wedding day in London and our report will look a little different,” the coverage actually begins tomorrow, and from then on out it is Royal Wedding 24/7 for the AP:

As Prince William and Kate Middleton say their vows, The Associated Press will be alerting every development, running live video in SD and HD, tweeting and posting on Facebook, updating a multifaceted interactive, sending four radio packages an hour and filing hundreds of photographs from key vantage points.

If you’re not interested in that, we promise our dog does look ridiculous. Dogs are animals! They’re not supposed to have haircuts!
