Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 12.43.39 PM

The U.S. cable news networks carried live coverage of the canonization ceremony early this morning for Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. NBC’s Lester Holt anchored an NBC News special report which was simulcast on MSNBC, starting at 4amET. (This means on the West Coast, the canonization ceremony had a lead-in of “Saturday Night Live” on NBC stations.) ABC News and CBS News did not offer live TV coverage of the ceremony but correspondents Terry Moran for ABC and Allen Pizzey for CBS filed reports from Vatican City. For NBC and MSNBC Anne Thompson and Chris Jansing reported from Rome.

On Fox News, Anita Vogel began coverage from Los Angeles just before 4amET with reporting from Amy Kellogg in Rome. Also at 4am, CNN/U.S. began a simulcast of CNNI’s live coverage anchored by Errol Barnett and Amara Walker with reporting from Delia Gallagher at the Vatican.
