Interesting question. The TV stations really didn't have much. There were no satellite hookups then, so they were very limited in what they could do. I believe Dee Thompson went to Puerto Rico for Channel 4 (he was a news reporter for them then) and would send the unprocessed film back to Pittsburgh on a plane. Someone would get the film a day later, process it and edit together his story. As I recall, the TV stations were pretty much just covering local reaction.
