This year NPR News and PBS NewsHour are teaming up to offer special coverage of the 2016 Republican and Democratic National Conventions.
KWBU will broadcast this special programming beginning with the Republican National Convention July 18 – 21 from 7pm to 10 pm each night.
We will also provide prime time coverage of the Democratic National Convention July 25 -28 from 7pm to 10pm nightly.
Convention coverage will be hosted from the Convention cities and will include live podium speeches; expert analysis; and interviews with newsmakers, delegates and NPR and PBS Newshour reporters and editors inside and outside the venues.
"Presidential nominating conventions, held every four years, remain an important milestone in the campaigns of both major parties," KWBU President Joe Riley said. "This is especially true this year, when the country seems so polarized. Providing convention coverage is an important part of KWBU’s mission to the greater Waco community."
