Bhutto : What’s Next?

By Chris Ariens 

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Paul J. Gough writes about the networks’ coverage plans for the aftermath of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

“ABC News’ Gretchen Peters is stationed in Pakistan for the network, which also is sending other correspondents, including World News Sunday anchor Dan Harris. NBC is sending correspondents Michelle Kosinski from New York and Ned Colt from London. Both hold current Pakistani visas, which NBC News newsgathering vp David Verdi said is a traditional precaution for hot-button regions.

CBS will have Richard Roth covering the assassination and its aftermath, with Sheila MacVicar en route to Pakistan…”

>Update: On the CBS Evening News, Lara Logan will report from Lahore and MacVicar will be in Islamabad. CBS tells us Logan’s report will focus on the riots and in the wake of Bhutto’s funeral. MacVicar will report on Bhutto’s final moments and the government’s reaction to new surveillance footage of her assassination.
