Swarm of media headed towards Chelsea Clinton’s super private wedding

chelsea-clinton-marc-mezvinsky New York, July 29 (ANI): A horde of media reporters and newscasters is heading towards Rhinebeck to cover Chelsea Clinton’s ‘Wedding of the Year’.

Erica Hill will co-anchor the Saturday edition of ‘The CBS Early Show’ from upstate Rhinebeck, but has no idea where she will be anchoring.

Reporters from local stations, including WABC/Ch. 7, WNBC/Ch. 4, WNYW/Ch. 5, WCBS/Ch. 2, NY1 and all the broadcast and cable networks are set to flood the tiny town hoping to get a glimpse of the super-secretive bash.

CBS’ Elaine Quijano this week has been staying at the Beekman Arms Inn in Rhinebeck, where some of the estimated 500 superstar guests are expected to stay for the wedding.

To add to the difficulty, anyone working on the wedding has signed a legal agreement not to talk.

“You can’t get a shot from close to [the wedding site]. It’s off the road. We’re going to be looking at Main St. and the town that’s hosting America’s wedding,” The New York Daily News quoted Michael Rosen, executive producer of the Saturday ‘Early Show’, as saying.

“Our expectation is there’s going to be such a lid on this, you’re not going to see a thing,” said Steve Paulus, regional vice president of Time Warner Cable’s Local News Division.

“For our Hudson Valley channel, it’s one of the biggest things to happen there since George Washington slept at the Beekman Arms,” he added. (ANI)
