Todd Starnes will anchor live coverage of the memorial at the Staples Center. Our coverage will include Entertainment Reporter Sabrina Sabbagh, Jessica Rosenthal and will include expert commentators from the worlds of music and entertainment. We will begin our live anchored coverage at 1:00:00pm ET (10am PT), as the event is scheduled to begin.  No advance program has been announced, but at last word, it was estimated that the event could take as much as two hours.

We plan to stay with the event for its full length, and we will be tapping into the full facilities of Fox News to cover not only the Memorial itself, but any possible incidents in the security area outside of the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
