HLN anchor Kyra Phillips, who recently moved over from the
flagship CNN network,
will lead HLN's convention coverage, it was announced Wednesday.
Phillips will anchor live reports from the political
conventions in Tampa, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C. during Morning Express with
Robin Meade and Evening Express and throughout the day.
HLN's coverage will focus on delegates and voters rather
than politicians' podium speeches, with features like "Moms Matter 2012," where
Phillips and a panel of delegate moms attending the RNC and DNC conventions
will discuss issues important to their vote.
In "The Voters Next Door" segment, HLN will profile
undecided voters in Florida with weekly updates on their views on the candidates
through Election Day.
