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.

Former Fox News Anchor Cleared in Rape Case

Greg Kelly, a former White House correspondent for Fox News and weekend anchor, who now anchors the morning show at FOX5 in New York, has been cleared of rape allegations made against him.

“We have concluded that the established facts do not constitute a crime under New York criminal law,” a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney said last night. The case was handled by the DA’s office and not the police as Kelly is the son of New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“I am so thankful the investigation established what I’ve known all along,” said Kelly in a statement, “that I am innocent of the allegations that were waged against me.”

The story was reported on the “Today” show and “Good Morning America” this morning which had both reported the newsy when it broke January 26.
