"The Teaser” is a preview of the guests we have lined up for the next day – so you know when to tune in (and when to set your alarm!). Guests and times are always subject to change.

We are continuing our coverage of the West Virginia mine explosion, with our own John Roberts on the scene.

In addition, we have the following guests:

5:45AM We are starting early with live coverage of the START signing ceremony. Michael Levi, Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and author, "On Nuclear Terrorism" will analyze.

7:30AM  Jeff Biggers, grandson of a miner and author of "Reckoning at Eagle Creek: The Secret Legacy of Coal in the Heartland" will give us an inside look at coal mining communities and how they handle these tragedies.

7:40AM & 8:40AM  Roughly one year after he was held by pirates, Captain Richard Phillips reveals new details about his ordeal. We'll also get his thoughts on the latest pirate attacks off of Somalia.

8:30AM  Luke Gelinas' 17-year-old son was tutored by Phoebe Prince and knew her bullies. He'll tell us what went wrong – and how the community can move forward.

    Despite inspring more safety legislation and technology tragic miner accidents continue to occur. Why don't these accidents inspire the development of technology and legislation demanding the creation use of solar and wind energy. Both are safer for humans, and better for the environment. What does it take to make us change?
