    With the Royal Wedding only little more than a month a way, network news divisions are announcing their coverage for both the day of the wedding, and days leading up to the wedding ceremony in Windsor England.

    I wonder if the USA network would show the wedding as well with Meghan being off of Suits. This is really a big deal and I’m kinda excited!!

    I really don't care, there are other things to worry about then a lowly Prince and a C-list actress who are living off the backs of hardworking taxpayers in the UK.

    I hear you tho it will likely bring in very high ratings. Good idea not to have Lester Holt there as the probability of breaking news I would say will be quite high.

    I understand the feeling, however they do make a lot of money for the UK.

    I wonder who will anchor ABS's coverage, Barbara Walters and Dianna Sawyer did it back in 2011.
    I know George is Chief anchor at ABC News and leads special programing, but I highly doubt he would go, because he need to be in New York just in case other news breaks. I bet Robin Roberts, David Muir, and Micheal Strahan will do it.

    I would personally love to see Diane Sawyer do it alongside Robin and David, that would be a great pairing because they get along so well.
