Moment of Silence Marks First Anniversary of Boston Marathon Bombings

The first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings was marked with a moment of silence at 2:49pmET, the time that the two bombs exploded near the finish line in 2013, killing three people and injuring hundreds more.

The broadcast networks presented special reports during the moment of silence: Brian Williams anchored on NBC, George Stephanopoulos on ABC and Scott Pelley on CBS. Pelley is in Boston, while Williams and Stephanopoulos anchored from New York.

Williams was joined by Ron Mott in Boston. ABC’s special report featured Dan Harris from Boston and former New York Police commissioner Ray Kelly, making his first appearance since joining the network.

The cable networks, which also provided live coverage of the moment of silence, have been dipping in and out of a tribute ceremony at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston since it began at noon. Fox News, MSNBC and CNN all aired Vice President Joe Biden‘s remarks live around 1:30pmET.

If Aereo Wins, Here’s a Plan B for Broadcasters

aereo_logo 304x200If Aereo loses its Supreme Court case, to be argued a week from today, it does not have a plan B.

Broadcasters, on the other hand, do. The Wall Street Journal reports today that CBS, one of the broadcasters that has sued to shut down the service, alleging that it steals their content, has a backup plan. CBS Corp. chairman Les Moonves has said the broadcast network could move to cable, preventing Aereo from taking the signal which now goes out over the air. Another option: beat Aereo at its own game. From the WSJ:

[A] person familiar with the situation said CBS has the ability to launch a service that would stream its programming over the Web simultaneously with its television broadcasts. CBS would charge a few dollars a month and show ads, the person said. Such a service would also likely offer on-demand programming. It could include Showtime, the CBS-owned premium cable channel, which would increase the subscription fee, the person said. CBS would use technology company Syncbak, in which it owns a minority stake, to power streaming of local TV stations’ signals over the Web, the person said.

Katie Couric will be interviewing Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia. The interview will be on Yahoo! Thursday morning. And to learn more about Aereo, and its fight with broadcasters, we’ll be debating it at the TVNewser Show, two weeks from today: BIA/Kelsey SVP Mark Fratrik, Internet attorney Tim Bukher and U.S. Law Week’s Tom Taylor will join us.
