The Big Three and Big Ben

Brian Williams, Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric are anchoring their nightly newscasts from Great Britain tonight where Pres. and Mrs. Obama arrived a few hours ago.

Two of the broadcasts, ABC World News and CBS Evening News, led with stories on the global economy, while NBC Nightly News led with a story from the U.S. – “the new General Motors.” Williams is anchoring from NBC’s London bureau, Gibson at ABC’s with a view of Big Ben behind him, while Couric is framed by London’s Tower Bridge.
