'PBS NewsHour' Scraps Monday Convention Coverage
Will start earlier on Tuesday to cover storm-shortened GOP meetings
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/27/2012 2:14:33 PM
According to the show, it will begin its coverage at 7 p.m. on Tuesday -- that will include speeches by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, as well as TV personality Janine Turner (Northern Exposure) but after the roll call for the nomination of VP, which is scheduled to end at 6:40 p.m.
But PBS is not confining its coverage to TV. It has 6 channels of live streamed coverage at www.pbs.org/newshour or www.ustream.tv/pbsnewshour.
That 7 p.m. is an hour earlier than planned, but NewsHour won't short viewers on the other end, continuing through the close of business for the day, which is estimated to be 11 p.m.
