How the networks covered double mass shootings Sunday night
NBC send “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt to El Paso, but also had on the ground coverage in Ohio. The broadcast dedicated its entire “headlines” tease open to the shootings and also used a special title card reading “Mass shootings in America: 24 hours of terror.”
Norah O’Donnell, the new anchor of “CBS Evening News,” anchored from New York Sunday night, but was on the ground in El Paso by Monday morning’s “CBS This Morning.” For its coverage, the network used a bold “Terror in America” logotype and replaced its cityscape background with a specially designed look that included a “CBS Evening News Special Edition” running across the top of the video wall behind O’Donnell’s chair.
CBS normally airs “CBS Weekend News” on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
