Here are out coverage plans for this afternoon:
1-2pm: BBC World Have Your Say – with perspectives on the death of Osama bin Laden from newsmakers and ordinary citizens around the world.
2-3pm: NPR News Special Coverage – NPR’s Neal Conan hosts an hour of coverage from Washington, DC
3-4pm: BBC Newshour – a special edition live from London.
After All Things Considered and Marketplace, we may air a news special at 7pm. Details as we firm them up.
One note: we received a small number of comments about our decision not to air the second hour of the Diane Rehm Show today. The second hour was an interview with Alice Walker about her love of raising chickens. In light of the day’s events, we felt we needed to focus on the bigger story. We stand by our decision to air On Point live from 11am-12pm today.
