5 reasons to watch The Lead with Jake Tapper

The Lead starts today, Monday, March 18th at 4 p.m. ET.

1) We've got a great line-up of guests for our debut show: Stephen Colbert, Lebron James, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

2) It's not your typical Washington, D.C. show - sure we've got politics, but we will also cover the most important topics at the 4 p.m. hour: world stories, national, business, sports, and pop culture.

3) You could be on the show - watch for the #YOU'RE IT segment, submit your response, and your tweet could be on-air.

4) The Lead looks into under reported stories in our segment The Buried Lead - bringing buried stories to the forefront.

5) Jake Tapper will speed-sketch a political cartoon on-air, while simultaneously texting, tweeting, and emailing news. Just kidding - but he could, because he's that good.
