August 18, 2008 at 2:06 PM (PT)
As usual, CNN RADIO plans to be all over the political conventions this year. But the network is adding something different to this year's coverage, offering affiliates a two hour daily talk show, "AMERICA VOTES 2008," during the conventions.
LISA DESJARDINS and ROLAND MARTIN will host the two-hour show 1-3p ET daily, live from the CNN GRILL in DENVER (at BROOKLYN'S restaurant AUGUST 25th-28th for the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION) and ST. PAUL (at the EAGLE STREET GRILL SEPTEMBER 1st-4th for the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION). The show will be available for affiliates to air on broadcast radio or online via CNN's stream at cnn.com. It will also be simulcast on cnn.com/Live, where the network will be streaming four channels of coverage.
The show is in addition to the regular coverage that includes live airings of the vice presidential and presidential nominees' speeches, several Special Reports, and live shots for affiliates.
