MSNBC will air an hour long special tonight on Pope Benedict XVI and the future of the Church under him at 7 pm EST with Chris Jansing hosting from Rome.
The inauguration of Pope Benedict XVI will commence at 4 am EST Sunday. All three networks will be carrying it live. So far it’s known that Christiane Amanpour will anchor CNN’s coverage and Jansing will do the same for MSNBC (we haven’t heard who FOX will be using to anchor their coverage yet). Ironically, Amanpour has drawn criticism from the Vatican over some of her reporting as CNN Fan has noted.
