Morning shows cover Las Vegas shooting
The big three broadcast networks offered up extensive coverage of the shooting near Las Vegas‘ Mandalay Bay hotel.
Live special reports were broadcast early Monday morning, covering much of the local news timeslots in most markets.
In Chicago, for example, the network O&Os joined their morning shows live starting at 6 a.m. local time — rather than on the typical tape delay.
These broadcasts, which were live out of New York at 7 a.m. eastern, were immediately proceeded by special reports on all three networks, with coverage “rolling” over into “Today,” “Good Morning America” and “CBS This Morning.”
The morning show’s normal hosts, who were hosting the live special reports, continued their coverage.
