Niagara Falls Tightrope Walk Makes News Off of ABC

Tonight live on ABC daredevil Nik Wallenda will attempt to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope. Not surprisingly, ABC’s “Good Morning America” spent a significant amount of time covering the stunt on this morning’s program, with Josh Elliott and Sam Champion reporting live from the Falls.

But ABC was hardly alone in reporting on the stunt. Fox News, The Weather Channel, MSNBC, Fox Business Network and CNN all ran segments this morning talking about Wallenda’s attempt. On ABC sister network ESPN, Elliot reunited with his old “SportsCenter” co-anchor Hannah Storm to promote the special (see below).

Many of the local affiliates for NBC and CBS (including in New York, Boston and other major markets) had segments on Wallenda’s walk this morning, even during cut-ins from “Today” and “CBS This Morning.” Those two morning shows opted to not talk about the walk, for more obvious reasons.
