All the major networks except CBS plan live coverage of the Michael Jackson memorial from Los Angeles on Tuesday, Variety says.
ABC, NBC, Fox and Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, E! Entertainment and TV Guide Network will carry the memorial live at 1 p.m. ET, and there will be a number of Web sites offering live streaming as well.
CBS’ Katie Couric is traveling to L.A. and will anchor two nights of “The CBS Evening News” from there, as well as a primetime special, but so far, the network is alone in not planning to offer live midday coverage. ABC’s Charlie Gibson will also be on site, as will Fox News’ Shepard Smith.
