Ford Funeral: ABC’s Plans

By Brian 

“ABC News will broadcast live coverage of ceremonies planned for the State Funeral of President Gerald Ford in California, Washington, D.C., and Michigan beginning Friday,” the network says. It’ll air the Saturday evening ceremony at the Capitol and the cathedral service on Tuesday morning. “Regular programming will be interrupted throughout the week as events warrant.”

Charles Gibson will anchor, joined by Barbara Walters, George Stephanopoulos, John Cochran, George Will, David Gergen, and biographer Richard Norton Smith, with Brian Rooney in Rancho Mirage and Dean Reynolds in Grand Rapids.

Gibson will anchor from D.C. on Tuesday.
