Former President Ronald Reagan would have turned 100 years old tomorrow. So this weekend, the news networks are offering special programming honoring the legacy of the 40th President of the United States.
CNN chief national correspondent John King will anchor special coverage of the Reagan Centennial Celebration live from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, tomorrow from 2-4pmET. Attendees at the event include former Secretary of State James Baker, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and cabinet members of the Reagan administration.
NBC’s “Meet the Press” will broadcast live from the Library tomorrow as well. Guests include Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry and Baker. There will be a round-table discussion with Baker, former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan, former San Francisco mayor and state assembly Speaker Willie Brown, and NBC News White House Correspondent during the Reagan administration, Andrea Mitchell.
Fox News Channel will air stories and vignettes throughout the weekend that will focus on the milestone moments in Reagan’s life: his Hollywood career, his marriage to Nancy, political campaigns, the presidency, and his retirement from public life. Tomorrow night, Fox News will re-air “Reagan’s Resolve” documentary. Fox News Los Angeles correspondent Casey Stegall will be reporting live from the Reagan Library on Sunday.
