Live coverage kicks off at 9 a.m. on ESPN, with Hannah Storm and John Anderson joining members of the local WABC-TV news team, and is set to run through 12:30 p.m. Live coverage picks up again on ABC at 4 p.m. and runs through 6 p.m. Full coverage of the marathon will be covered locally on WABC-TV Channel 7.
