New Hampshire Public Radio will air coverage of John McCain’s memorial service from the Washington National Cathedral in the nation’s capital on Saturday, Sept. 1.

National Public Radio will provide live, anchored reporting of the entire service, which will be broadcast during Weekend Edition Saturday on NHPR. Coverage starts at 10 a.m. with host and Congressional Correspondent Scott Detrow. White House Correspondent Scott Horsley will join Detrow in-studio, and Kelsey Snell, NPR Congressional Reporter, will report from the National Cathedral.

McCain, a war hero, Arizona senator and presidential candidate, died Aug. 25 from brain cancer. His life and legacy will be remembered and honored by colleagues and friends such as Barack Obama and George W. Bush at the service.
