CNN Coverage of Michael Jackson Memorial

CNN has shown a strong ratings surge for its recent Michael Jackson programming. Its coverage of the Jacckson memorial service today will start at 6 a.m. with American Morning from Los Angeles.

The memorial itself will become the focus at noon with Don Lemon continuing to anchor CNN’s coverage from Los Angeles. He will be joined there by Soledad O’Brien, Anderson Cooper and Larry King.

Several of CNN’s sister channels – HLN, CNN International and CNN en Espanol – will also be carrying the memorial live. Robin Meade, A.J. Hammer and Jane Velez-Mitchell will anchor the coverage at HLN (formerly Headline News).

Just as it did for the inauguration of President Barack Obama, CNN will again team up with Facebook Connect so that Internet users can watch CNN coverage online as they update their Facebook status or communicate with friends using the CNN.com live video player. That coverage starts at 8:30 a.m.
