Broadcast Networks Cover 10th Anniversary of 9/11/01

The broadcast networks will all devote significant portions of tomorrow to special coverage marking the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The evening news anchors — Brian Williams for NBC, Diane Sawyer for ABC and Scott Pelley for CBS — will each anchor coverage for their respective network beginning at 8 a.m.ET.

Following the conclusion of the scheduled memorial events, CBS News will air “Face the Nation” live from Ground Zero. NBC and ABC will preempt their Sunday political affairs shows, although “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory will contribute to NBC’s coverage from the Pentagon and “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour will contribute to ABC’s coverage from Washington, DC.

Williams will be back on the air for a live broadcast of “Nightly News” from Ground Zero at 6:30 p.m.ET. ABC’s “World News with David Muir” will originate from the studio while the “CBS Evening News with Russ Mitchell” will be broadcast the WTC Memorial site.
