CBS News will present a live primetime special of 48 Hours: Paris Under Attack prior to tonight’s Democratic presidential debate, the network announced Saturday morning.
CBS This Morning co-Host Norah O’Donnell will anchor the 5 p.m. PT special edition of 48 Hours from New York and CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley will report on the attacks from Paris.
A team of CBS News correspondents in Paris, Washington, D.C., New York and around the world will also contribute to the special, which will include in-depth reports on the attacks; the politics of terrorism; security vulnerabilities; the latest U.S. intelligence; interviews with witnesses; and a profile of the U.S. band Eagles of Death Metal, which was playing at the Bataclan concert hall when the attacks occurred, according to the release.
The 48 Hours special will lead into CBS News’ Democratic presidential debate coverage, which will broadcast live from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, tonight at 6 p.m. PT. The 48 Hours special will be broadcast following the debate for West Coast viewers.
John Dickerson will be joined by CBS News Congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes, KCCI anchor Kevin Cooney and the Des Moines Register’s political columnist Kathie Obradovich at the moderators’ table.
