CNN Introducing Two New Specials This Week

lemon_cooper8-21.jpgCNN will be broadcasting a new special as well as a special series over the next week, both of which appear to be sobering, grave, and other similar adjectives.

Saturday, Don Lemon is hosting a special entitled “Inside Chicago’s Killer Town” about violence in a Chicago neighborhood. A press release states, “He takes us into a neighborhood where Ceasefire, a community group involved in reducing violence, is active and working. We hear from current and former gang members who have been shot and/or are in rehab trying to turn their lives around.”

Then, starting Monday, “AC360″ will be running a special series called “After the Storm” checking in on New Orleans four years after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Along with Anderson Cooper anchoring, there will be special reports from Sean Callebs, Drew Griffin, Gary Tuchman and CNN’s senior medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. On Thursday, Cooper will join James Carville in New Orleans for a tour of the city.

New Years on the Cablers: Varied Options

One week from tonight, the ball will drop in Times Square and the cablers will ring in the New Year in various ways:

• CNN — Anderson Cooper hosts again with Kathy Griffin from 11pm-1amET. Erica Hill contributes from Times Square, with Gary Tuchman in Central Park, Sean Callebs in New Orleans, John Zarrella in Key West, FL and HLN’s Brooke Anderson at “Club CNN” in Las Vegas. (It’s like a the CNN Grill but with champagne instead of CNN Brew) Musical performances are a mix — Lil Wayne in Atlanta, Lynyrd Skynyrd in Kentucky and more. Check out the site.

• FNC — Once again this year Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly host the UParty from 10pm-1amET, with contributors Jill Dobson, Courtney Friel, Greg Gutfeld, Griff Jenkins and Rick Leventhal. Musical performances include O.A.R., Locash Cowboys and more. You can check out the pink-themed site for more details.

• MSNBC — And now, for something totally different. At 10pmET, Countdown with Keith Olbermann‘s “Favorite People 2008″ re-airs, followed by a half-hour “Rachel Maddow Show Awards for Excellence in Categories To Be Determined.” From 11:30pm-12:30amET, MSNBC will simulcast NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly. The Rachel Maddow Show Awards returns for a second half-hour from 12:30-1:00amET.

As Ike Gets Closer to Shore, So Do the Networks

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.

Dolly Moves Toward Land

CNNDolly_7.22.jpgCNN has broken out the Hurricane Stats box, where programming can be squeezed-back allowing for details along the right hand side of the screen. Tropical Storm Dolly is expected to make landfall as a Category 1 storm tomorrow along the Texas-Mexico border.

For NBC/MSNBC, correspondents Don Teague and Charles Hadlock are in South Texas and Weather Plus’ Jeff Ranieri is en route.

For Fox News, Claudia Cowan is the lead correspondent.
