FOX News Radio details DNC, RNC convention plans


FOX News Radio (FNR) will play a role in the ‘The FOX Experience’ at both the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Denver (August 25-28) and the Republican National Convention (RNC) in St. Paul (September 1-4).  The Fox Experience will provide comprehensive coverage of the events across several FOX News platforms — including FOX News Channel, FOX Business Network, FOX News Radio, and FOX News Mobile.

FNR will provide at least 2 hours of live (9PM to at least 11PM ET) anchored coverage from inside both the Pepsi and Excel Centers during the primetime convention coverage.  The coverage at each convention will be anchored by Mike Majchrowitz and Jeff Birnbaum.  In addition, on August Thursday August 28th, Majchrowitz and Birnbaum will anchor Senator Barack Obama’s speech live from Invesco Field. 

FNR will also continue to post twice daily “America’s Election Headquarters” reports during and after the conventions- one for the Morning Drive and one for the evenings Monday through Friday.  Live 5-minute convention alerts will also be offered to affiliates as well as stations being able to link coverage to their websites.
