Anchored by Jake Tapper, The Lead airs at 4 p.m. ET on CNN.
We've moved! Come join us at our new show page.
The Lead starts today, Monday, March 18th at 4 p.m. ET.
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.
