Cablers Throw out Royal Wedding Playbook to Cover Deadly Southern Storms

The plan was that much of today’s cable news coverage would be from London, ahead of tomorrow’s Royal Wedding. That changed as the damage reports came in and the death toll rose from last night’s string of Southern storms.

FNC has devoted a majority of airtime today to the devastation in the South including from correspondents Jonathan Serrie reporting in Birmingham, Rick Reichmuth in Tuscaloosa, Mike Tobin in Smithville, MS and Steve Harrigan in Tennessee. John Roberts anchored from Atlanta today and will be in the field tomorrow. He’ll also anchor the 1pm and 6pm on Saturday from a location to be determined.

Over on CNN today, correspondents Reynolds Wolf, Don Lemon, Martin Savidge, Ines Ferre, Wayne Drash, and Sarah Hoyee are reporting from Alabama while Rafael Romo and Matt Cherry are reporting from Georgia.

CNN Brings Props to the Chilean Miner Rescue Party

If cable news channels are experts at anything, it is killing time. There are always guests willing to come on and talk about whatever the story of the moment is, and sometimes props too. Remember the chunk of pipe that made the evening news rounds during the Gulf oil disaster?

Yesterday CNN, which has been ahead of the curve in the gimmicks department with its virtual objects, holograms and magic walls, apparently called in the Warner Bros. Movie Studio prop department as it featured a replica of the capsule that the Chilean miners would be returning to the surface in.

Tony Harris and Rafael Romo explained the capsule to viewers yesterday, as the network waited for something new to happen in Chile.
