After a little more than a day’s worth of deliberation, the jury in the Casey Anthony trial — this summer’s cable news hit series — has reached a verdict. It will be read at 2:15pmET. The news of a verdict came at 1:29pmET.
Fox News is offering a special report for affiliates to be anchored by Bill Hemmer. Martha MacCallum will anchor the verdict on Fox News Channel. ABC News will air a special report anchored by George Stephanopoulos. CNN, which has been leaving much of the testimony to sister network HLN, will carry the verdict live which will simulcast on CNN International. Of course, HLN will carry it as will MSNBC. Fox Business will carry the verdict as well. CBS News, which hasn’t covered the trial to the extent that ABC and NBC have, will produce a primetime “48 Hours” special tonight 10pmET/9pmCT.
