IN MEMORIAM: Ted Kennedy coverage
August 26, 2009  | By Diane Werts
 
ted kennedy dead.jpgSen. Edward Kennedy's funeral ceremonies will be carried live on cable's C-SPAN this weekend, starting with Friday night's "Celebration of Life Memorial Service" 7-9 p.m. ET from Massachusetts' JFK presidential library.

Saturday's C-SPAN coverage includes the Boston funeral mass 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET and the Arlington National Cemetery burial service at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Other news outlets are likely to carry coverage as well. But C-SPAN is, of course, commercial-free, and generally pundit-free, too.

TV is jumping into action to assess the life and legacy of Sen. Ted Kennedy, who died late Tuesday from brain cancer.

Ted Kennedy -- The Last Brother airs tonight (Wednesday) at 8 ET from CBS News, anchored by Katie Couric and promising "exclusive footage culled from CBS News' vast archives." News coverage and video previews here.
