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.

FNC’s Gustav Plans: Continues All Night

fnc_8-31.JPGFox News Channel’s coverage of Hurricane Gustav will continue live throughout the night. At 7pmET, Shepard Smith anchors live from New Orleans. Brit Hume will take over an hour later from St. Paul, with discussion of the impact of Gustav on the RNC. From 10pm-MidnightET, Geraldo Rivera anchors from New Orleans.

Gregg Jarrett, Julie Banderas, Todd Connor and Uma Pemmaraju anchor from Midnight-5amET, with Fox & Friends picking up coverage an hour early.

Besides Smith and Rivera, FNC has a full slate of correspondents in the area, with Steve Harrigan (just back from Georgia/Russia coverage), Trace Gallagher, Jon Scott and correspondents from regional bureaus (Kris Gutierrez, Casey Stegall, Johnathan Serrie, Marianne Silber, Phil Keating and Adam Housley). Of course the “Weather Machine” Janice Dean has worked all day today from the Fox Extreme Weather Center.

As mentioned earlier, FBN will be live from at least 7am-7pmET.
