NBC News Radio details conventions coverage


NBC News and Dial GlobalDial Global announced NBC News Radio’s plans for live coverage from both the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Anchor and Managing Editor of “NBC Nightly News” and “Rock Center” Brian Williams will provide live coverage simulcast with NBC-TV from 10-11pm ET Tuesday-Thursday, August 28-30, during the Republican National Convention in Tampa; and on Tuesday, 9/4 and Thursday, 9/6 (9-11pm ET) during the Democratic National Convention from Charlotte.  (Due to NFL football on NBC-TV, there will be no simulcast coverage on Wednesday, 9/5).

Live anchored and continuous coverage of the convention sessions, simulcast with MSNBC, will be available beginning at 7:00pm ET for the RNC Monday-Thursday, August 27-30 and the DNC Tuesday-Thursday, September 4-6.

NBC News Radio coverage will include a daily feature, “NBC News Convention Minute,” from “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory, airing Monday-Friday from the RNC convention in Tampa and Tuesday-Friday from the DNC convention in Charlotte.

Special reports will also be provided every half hour from 7:30pm-11:30pm ET each night of both conventions.  NBC News Radio correspondents Bob Costantini and Matt DelSignore will provide custom reports and live shots for affiliates.
