Networks travel to Thousand Oaks for shooting coverage
All three major broadcast networks sent their evening newscast anchors to Thousand Oaks, California, for on-the-scene coverage of the mass shooting at a local bar.
“NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt anchored the entire broadcast outdoors from near the shooting scene. The network lead with the story and also featured it first in its teases. The show’s normal open was modified with the title “California Bar Massacre” before briefing switching to the show’s normal title card.
