Networks Remembering Tragedy On July 4

CNN and Fox Sports will have special programming today to reflect on tragedy, even as the country celebrates the July 4 holiday.

At 3:30 PM today, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin will host “Remembering The Fallen,” a half-hour special about the 19 firefighters that were killed in Arizona on Sunday. It will feature interviews with their families, and new reporting from the scene of the fire. CNN also put together an interactive piece on the fallen firefighters.

Fox Sports, meanwhile, is planning special features remembering the victims of the tragic tornado that ripped through a suburb of Oklahoma City in May. The features, called “The American Way,” will air during the Major League Baseball pre-game shows across the country today, and will continue through the weekend on Fox’s Saturday MLB game of the week, and on SPEED, Fox Soccer Channel and FUEL. You can see a preview here.
