Network Special Reports For President Obama’s Isaac Address

On the first official day of the Republican National Convention, the broadcast and cable networks kicked things off with an address from President Obama.

The broadcasters aired special reports around 10:08 AM ET to present President Obama’s statements on the impending landfall of Tropical Storm (and likely soon to be Hurricane) Isaac.

NBC News had Matt Lauer and David Gregory anchoring in Tampa, while ABC had Robin Roberts and Josh Elliott behind the desk. CBS News coverage was led by Jim Axelrod.

The cable networks broke in at 10:09, as the President began his remarks, warning residents in Isaac’s path to listen to local officials, and evacuate if necessary.
