More Tributes To Sen. Kennedy

kennedy_time.jpgAs the day has progressed, many media outlets have announced plans to pay tribute to Sen. Edward Kennedy. Here’s some of what we’re getting ready to see:

Time magazine is planning a commemorative issue that will feature Kennedy on the cover with tributes inside from Joe Klein, Bob Shrum, Ted Sorensen and Mike Barnicle. It is set to hit newsstands Friday. The last time Time put out a commemorative issue was to mark Michael Jackson‘s death in June.

Tonight at 9 p.m., MSNBC will present a “first look” of “The Kennedy Brothers: A Hardball Documentary.” The doc will also air, as scheduled, tomorrow at 7.

At 10 p.m., ABC News will broadcast an hour-long special, “Remembering Ted Kennedy,” which will focus on his life and legacy, anchored by Charles Gibson from Hyannis Port, Mass. and Diane Sawyer in New York.

TVNewser has a list of some of the other television specials that will be airing tonight on the networks and cable news channels.

We’re sure there will be more to come. If you hear of anything interesting memorializing Kennedy let us know.
