ABC decided to lead with winter weather. Los-Angeles-based Brian Rooney (subscription required) described how heavy snow at the hub in Denver has disrupted airline traffic across western states and closed Interstate highways. One nugget, as it were, from Rooney was that NBA star Allen Iverson, just now traded to Denver, was unable to fly in to join his new teammates. ABC was out on a limb in deciding to make such a big deal of the blizzard. NBC covered the storm with a brief stand-up by Lorie Hirose. CBS mentioned it with nothing more than a voiceover.
