Broadcast Newsers Are Reporting From Pittsburgh In the Aftermath of Synagogue Attack

By A.J. Katz 

Broadcast news networks have sent their evening news anchors (and in the case of CBS and NBC, a morning show co-host) to Pittsburgh to cover the horrific domestic terror attack that claimed the lives of 11 worshipers inside a synagogue.

ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News and CBS Evening News all originated from Pittsburgh on Sunday evening, and will do so again Monday night.


Broadcast newsers also reported for their network morning shows.

CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor did double duty. In addition to last night’s newscast, he reported for CBS This Morning on Monday, and he was joined by CBS This Morning co-host Bianna Golodryga. They were joined by CBS News correspondents Nikki Battiste and David Begnaud.

Glor spoke with four members of the congregation Sunday evening, and Golodryga spoke with Tree of Life synagogue Rabbi Jeffrey Meyers.

The attack has extra-ordinary meaning for Golodryga, as per this clip:

Savannah Guthrie reported for NBC’s Today this morning from Pittsburgh. She interviewed relatives of the victims Sunday night, then Rabbi Meyers early Monday morning.


She then interview Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto at the start of the 9 a.m. hour (an hour which will look quite similar to Today’s first two hours for the time being).

ABC News correspondents Matt Gutman and Amy Robach reported from Pittsburgh.

George Stephanopoulos conducted remote interviews with Rabbi Meyers and Mayor Peduto Monday morning from New York.
