CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric is reporting live from the scene where USAirways flight 1549 crashed into the Hudson River a few hours ago. Couric is having to deal with honking horns along the West Side Highway while talking with correspondent Randall Pinkston and interviewing the last passenger who made it off the plane.
NBC and ABC each went until about 6:41pmET with their coverage before taking a break. CBS reported on the cold in the Midwest (while Couric stood in the cold in the east), reported a story on the cold weather expected for the Inauguration, then pitched to a Richard Roth story on the situation in Gaza before taking a break around 6:44pmET.
> And here in New York (at 7pmET) WABC-7, WCBS-2, WNBC-4 & WNYW Fox5 are all live covering the aftermath of the crash.
