FNC dropped their standard ticker and put up a pretty cool display with the flight data.

Fox Business Network also carried the launch, though the other biz nets, Bloomberg and CNBC, did not.

Astronaut Tom Jones appeared from Washington on FNC with Megyn Kelly. John Zarrella reported from Kennedy Space Center for CNN and Jay Barbree was there for MSNBC. Barbree is the only journalist to have covered every manned space mission in US history.
