The big four broadcasters and cable news networks will keep us waiting a bit longer before they reveal what’s in store on election night. As one insider told TVNewser last week, “you think we want to give our play book to the other guys?” “No,” was our answer.
Anyway, we do have the plans for PBS and BBC.
• Jim Lehrer anchors PBS’ election coverage with political analysis from Mark Shields & David Brooks. Senior Correspondents Gwen Ifill, Judy Woodruff, Ray Suarez, Jeffrey Brown, and Margaret Warner contribute. Coverage begins at 9pmET and will continue until midnight or until a winner is announced.
• BBC has tapped British-born but red-blooded American Ted Koppel to join them on the set of the Washington Bureau. Coverage begins at 6pmET and will be anchored by David Dimbleby along with Matt Frei, anchor of BBC World News America.
The press releases are after the jump…
