NBC Does An About-Face On Funeral

NBC executives changed their minds yesterday and decided to join other networks that will televise Michael Jackson's memorial service live.

NBC joins ABC, CNN, MSNBC and E! Entertainment in offering the ceremony live. It's set for 1700 GMT tomorrow at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

NBC had initially planned only a one-hour prime-time special tomorrow night, but said yesterday it would also cover the event live. It was not immediately clear who would anchor.

Charles Gibson will anchor coverage for ABC, which is setting aside its typical daytime programming.

CBS anchor Katie Couric will be at the Staples Center, but the network has not yet committed to live coverage.
