This wasn’t so much an individual channel breakdown but rather a pool feed. Today was the memorial service for Kobe Bryant and many networks carried it live - ESPN, NBA TV, Fox Sports, CNN, MSNBC, BET and others. Towards the end of the service while Michael Jordan was speaking the picture started to break up on the pool feed. Eventually most stations put up a slide as the picture was incredibly pixelated while the audio continued, eventually it all broke up and the networks had to go to reporters for about three minutes while the satellite feed was down. Other TV stations that were streaming it online either put up a graphic of Kobe Bryant or a tag board of various tweets.
Interestingly the newspapers and online media outlets that were live streaming the event on Facebook and YouTube did not have any issues. I assume they must have provided an online stream for those outlets, where TV stations had to rely on the satellite feed.
As far as I know all the LA stations carried the coverage locally.
The only one I managed to capture live was the blue screen from Telemundo 52/KVEA. The rest I looked on network and affiliate streams and found this.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
