Hurricane Irene: Saturday Network Newscasts

Brian Williams anchored a one-hour “Nightly News” again tonight. Williams, who anchored from the Jersey Shore last night, was in his New York studio tonight. While many affiliates may have passed on taking the second half hour, the entire show was simulcast on MSNBC. In addition to correspondents along the East Coast, Harry Smith did a live shot from Times Square, where most everything is shut down, saying about a crowd that had gathered to watch: “They have determined that we are in fact the only attraction worth paying any attention to.”

David Muir anchored “World News.” Similar to Smith’s report on NBC, Diane Sawyer walked the streets of Times Square — right in front of ABC’s studios — with the New York City angle. GMA’s Sam Champion was in Battery Park.

Anthony Mason was in anchoring the CBS “Evening News” which also devoted the entire show to Irene.
