Jeff Glor: Staples Center Sneak Peek

CBS News National Correspondent Jeff Glor with a sneak peek at his piece tonight on the CBS Evening News.

Hi everybody on It's Jeff Glor outside the Staples Center in LA, the morning before the Michael Jackson memorial service here. You can see this enormous white board, that's been set up. Folks taking pictures out in front of it. And literally thousands of people have been coming by to sign this board all morning long. If we pivot across the street, you can see the Nokia Plaza, where there are layers and layers television cameras, and tv correspondents preparing for this service tomorrow. I'm told that to get into this area tomorrow, you need a blue wristband, like the one on my arm right there. That's to just get into the area, not even to get into the service itself. Police are going to try to keep people back as best they can. Make sure this is a safe environment. A story we're working on for the evening news tonight is on the cost associated with this service: both the money that's going to be generated for the city of Los Angeles, but also the amount of money they'll be spending. Hope to see you at 6:30 eastern time for the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.
See you then.
