Fl Channel devotes Tuesday to Sen. King coverage

For anyone who can't make it to the Tuesday afternoon Capitol memorial service for the late Sen. Jim King, just turn on your television or computer.

Beth Switzer of the Florida Channel said the hours leading up to the 2 p.m. service in House chambers will be devoted to footage of past King interviews and floor speeches, as well as remembrances from other state officials and dignitaries. The Florida Channel also will air the service live, and stream it on the station's Web site.

Switzer said the station is likely to re-broadcast the service later Tuesday afternoon as well.

King's family also is holding a memorial service Saturday at 11 a.m. in Jacksonville at St. John's Episcopal Cathedral. After Tuesday's service in Tallahassee, King's cremains will be interred on FSU's campus during a private ceremony. With him for eternity will be his beloved dogs.
