CNN To Provide Global, Multi-Platform Coverage of the Diamond Jubilee

Live from London, CNN will globally televise the spectacular pageantry of the Diamond Jubilee, marking Queen Elizabeth’s 60 year reign of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.  CNN’s special live coverage will be anchored by Piers Morgan and Brooke Baldwin, across CNN/U.S. and CNN International.  Users can also watch the simulcast live online at or on the CNN App for iPad and iPhone by authenticating through their cable, satellite or telco provider.

CNN’s live simulcast coverage begins on Sunday, June 3, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. (ET) on location at the Tower Bridge for the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.  Hundreds of boats will sail up the River Thames, making it one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river.

Additionally, CNN International will feature live programming from location with Becky Anderson, Richard Quest, Zain Verjee and CNN’s Royal Correspondent Max Foster.  CNN en Español will provide coverage on Mirador Mundial, which broadcasts Saturday and Sunday at 6 p.m. (ET).
