Democratic Convention Coverage

PBS is the only place to watch full convention coverage

Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2012

The Republican and Democratic national conventions are a staple of America’s presidential election every four years, and PBS is the only place on broadcast television to watch full primetime coverage of both conventions during the next two weeks.

Last week during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., award-winning political journalists Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill of PBS NewsHour co-anchored gavel-to-gavel broadcast coverage from the PBS Skybox. This week, they’ll do the same at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Democratic National Convention coverage airs Tuesday, Sept. 4 – Thursday, Sept. 6 beginning at 8/7 pm CT on KET. Each night offers three hours of continuous convention coverage, giving you an inside look at the issues and people who will shape America’s future come Election Day in November.

Also, this year’s convention coverage includes 24-hour online stories and updates with NewsHour correspondent Hari Sreenivasan and extended coverage via the NewsHour’s interactive digital map center and “NewsHour All Hours,” a 24-hour livestream on multiple channels that offers viewers an “all-access pass” to the conventions. Visit pbs.org/newshour/vote2012 for access.

    Disappointed in PBS Reno. Cut out the women of Congress after the 3rd speech. To what, listen to an aging Jessie Jackson! What a waste of time! Power to the women! Guess its still a man’s world! Too bad! Power to the women!
