NBC12 and NBC12.com will be the place to turn to on Election Night 2013. We are excited to provide 4.5 straight hours of wall to wall election coverage and both television and on line.
It will start at 7pm just as the polls close. We will have a special one hour broadcast that will air on TV and stream on NBC12.com. We will have live reports from the various campaign headquarters and have an up to the minute review of the returns as they come in.
Then at 8pm we shift to a special digital-only broadcast. We'll continue to check in at the various polling locations and campaign headquarters, but will also bring in a roundtable of experts to discuss what we are seeing with the results and what it could mean about the outcome. The digital-only broadcast is available streaming at NBC12.com and through the NBC12 mobile app.
It is a perfect complement to whatever else you may be watching that night. Keep your phone or tablet handy with our livestream as your watch your favorite prime time programming.
In addition to the NBC12 team in the field, the following experts will join me on set:
Pete Snyder- Snyder is the founder of the angel investment firm Disruptor Capital. He is the current Co-Finance Chair for Ken Cuccinelli's campaign for governor. Snyder also ran for the GOP nomination for Lt. Governor, losing on the final ballot at the state convention to the current nominee, E.W. Jackson.
Ben Tribbett- Tribbett is a veteran democratic campaign consultant, serving as campaign manager to several Virginia congressional campaigns. Ben worked on over 25 different federal, state and local campaigns- including running a record of 7-1 defeating Republican incumbents as a Campaign Manager. He is perhaps best known as the author of the widely read liberal political blog, Not Larry Sabato.
Jen Thompson- Thompson is a professor and the Director of External Relations at the Wilder School of Government at VCU. Thompson is a former national campaign and Capitol Hill staffer. She is frequently quoted on political issues by publications and media outlets across the country.
In addition to our three main guests, expect a few surprises as well as we will have cameras at all the important locations where voters and candidates will be on election night.
Our broadcast- which every part of will stream online uninterrupted- would be a great backdrop for election night parties that will need a constant flow of information on monitors at your event.
Please join us next Tuesday!
