Commuter Train Derails In New York City

The early morning derailment of a Metro-North train in the Bronx has kept New York’s local station in continuing coverage, pre-empting most of the network’s Sunday public affairs programs. The 8 cars of the Grand Central-bound commuter train derailed as it rounded a bend, approaching the Spuyten Duyvil station killing four people an injuring more than 60 others.

Fox News reported the news at 8:17, CNN reported it at 8:29, and MSNBC at 8:53.

“CBS Sunday Morning” and “Face the Nation” were pre-empted in New York, as was ABC’s “This Week” and NBC’s “Meet the Press.” In New York, “This Week” will air on WABC at 1pm. MSNBC will re-air “Meet the Press” at 2pmET.

NBC tells us for “Nightly News” they have Tom Costello on the scene with the latest on the investigation, Katy Tur will report on victims and those injured and Kristen Dahlgren will take a look at how holiday weekend travel will be affected.

> Update: One of those killed, 58-year-old Jim Lovell of Cold Spring, NY, worked as a writer and sound designer and was heading to Manhattan to work on preparing the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting Tuesday night.

As Ike Gets Closer to Shore, So Do the Networks

Ike_9.12.jpg

ABC’s Sam Champion had arrived in Texas in time for Nightline last night. CNN’s Anderson Cooper broadcast live from Houston as well, and while getting an update from meteorologist Chad Myers asked Myers to email him the best (or perhaps worst) location to broadcast from tonight.

This morning, CNN and MSNBC have begun squeezing back their programming, keeping Hurricane Ike stats on the screen.

Even The Weather Channel is trying to show the seriousness of the Cat 2 storm to anyone choosing to ride it out. Here’s their morning headline: “A Potential Life-Threatening Surge from Ike.”

We’ll update this post throughout the day as we hear who is going to be covering the storm and from where…

• CNN — More than 70 anchors, correspondents, producers and support-personnel will report along the Texas coastline, representing CNN/U.S., CNN International, CNN Espanol, CNN Radio, CNN.com and Headline News. In addition to Cooper, Rick Sanchez, Gary Tuchman, Sean Callebs, Betty Nguyen, Susan Candiotti, Jeanne Meserve, Ali Velshi, Rusty Dornin, Rob Marciano and Reynolds Wolf will report on the storm. CNN will remain live all night and into the morning.

• CBS — Hari Sreenivasan is in Houston. Dave Price is in Galveston. Both will report for the Evening News tonight and The Early Show tomorrow.

• FNC — Geraldo Rivera, Steve Harrigan and Marianne Silber are in Galveston, TX, as is Jeff Flock from FBN. Kris Gutierrez is in Surfside Beach, Freeport, Casey Stegall is in Clear Lake and Rick Leventhal is in Port Lavaca. Also, Shepard Smith anchors tonight from 10pm-MidnightET (from New York), followed by Rivera Midnight-3amET and Jamie Colby from 3am-6amET.

• NBC/MSNBC/CNBC — Amy Robach is in Galveston for Today & Weekend Today. Janet Shamlian, Don Teague, Kerry Sanders, Charles Hadlock, Kristen Dahlgren and Jay Gray are on the scene, as is NBC Weather Plus meteorologist Jeff Ranieri and CNBC’s Scott Cohn. NBC will also use correspondents and meteorologists from soon-to-be owned The Weather Channel.

• ABC — In addition to Sam Champion, GMA Weekend’s Bill Weir is in Texas as well as Sharyn Alfonsi and Ryan Owens.
