"PBS NewsHour Coverage: Democratic National Convention"
PBS NewsHour will combine forces with NPR to co-produce and simulcast coverage of the 2016 Democratic National Convention July 25 – 28 in Philadelphia, to be co-anchored by Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff. The partnership between PBS NewsHour and NPR -- a first time collaboration for the two organizations at the conventions -- will make for the smartest coverage to be found on television, radio and digital.
NPR host Rachel Martin will report inside the hall with NewsHour’s Lisa Desjardins and John Yang and NPR’s Sue Davis. Ifill and Woodruff will also be joined by NPR’s Mara Liaisson, Ron Elving and Domenico Montenaro and NewsHour regular contributors including syndicated columnist Mark Shields, New York Times columnist David Brooks and Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter. Gavel to gavel coverage will extend online and on social, to include live streaming of stage speeches and floor interviews.
In addition to NewsHour and NPR’s reporting efforts, several NPR station reporters and their delegations will bring added depth and insight to the joint coverage.
