Cable Nets Plan Saturday Coverage of Nevada Caucus


By Merrill Knox Comment

The fight for the Republican Presidential nomination continues tomorrow in Nevada, and as usual, the cable networks will be there.

MSNBC’s coverage will run from 6-10:30pmET. The first two hours will be hosted by MSNBC political analyst Michael Smerconish. Chris Matthews will take over from the DC bureau at 8pmET.

CNN’s live coverage will run from 7-10pmET and will be anchored by Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper and John King. At 11pmET, Don Lemon will anchor a live edition of “Newsroom.”

Fox News will stick with a regular Saturday night schedule in the early part of primetime — “Huckabee” at 8pmET, followed by “Justice with Judge Janine.” At 10pmET, Bret Baier will host a one-hour live special on the caucus results. Baier will also provide extended live cut-ins during the rest of primetime programming.
