All Broadcast Nets to Carry Obama Speech

By Chris Ariens Comment

FOX broadcasting, which has passed on taking prime time news conferences from Pres. Obama in the past, will carry tomorrow night’s address at West Point at 8pmET. A new “So You Think You Can Dance” will begin after the president’s speech (in the Eastern/Central time zones; regular time on the West Coast).

ABC announced today that it too will carry the speech. Originally scheduled programs, including “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” will now air next Tuesday at 8pmET.

NBC and CBS announced last Wednesday that they would be carrying the speech.

The cable news channels will also air the address which will focus on the future role of the U.S. military in Afghanistan.
