The ASSOCIATED PRESS has launched its 2016 Radio Campaign Kit to help radio affiliates offer election returns and reporting leading into the elections this NOVEMBER and the inauguration of the next President in JANUARY.
The service will provide stations with verified vote counts in primary elections as well as the NOVEMBER 8th general election, including online elements like maps and modules. HUBBARD News WTOP/WASHINGTON is among the stations signing up for the service this year.
“The AP is excited to have WTOP on board and to develop this service for all our radio members,” said AP Election Services and Vertical Products Director BRIAN SCANLON. “The AP’s 2016 Radio Campaign Kit represents an important step for us as we continue to push to make our services responsive to our members’ needs around big-event stories such as the presidential campaign.”
