Anwar Al-Awlaki Killed in Yemen, ABC to Carry Special Report

ABC will break into regular programming just after 11 AM to carry President Obama’s remarks on the death of Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki. Diane Sawyer will anchor from New York. NBC News will not be breaking in to regular programming, though its cable channel MSNBC will be carrying it live. CBS will also decline to carry the comments.

ABC News was also the only network to air a special report on his death at 5:18 AM, with George Stephanopoulos anchoring. While NBC and CBS did not offer special reports, many had local news programs on at the hour on the east coast, which carried the news.

On the cable channels, Fox News reported the news at 4:37 AM, CNN followed suit at 4:41 AM and MSNBC reported his death at 5:30 AM.
