Shortly after 12:3opmET this afternoon, Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison for his role in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson.

HLN, which has seen ratings success with its Murray trial coverage, was the first cable network to go to the sentencing, at 12:14pmET.

Fox News Channel, CNN and MSNBC all went to the trial just before the sentence was read, at 12:30pmET, and stayed with it until just before 1pmET. CNN International also simulcast CNN coverage of the sentencing.
