Award-winning political journalists Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill co-anchor live broadcast coverage from the PBS Skybox at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida (August 27 – 30), and from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina (September 4 – 5), as well as the Bank of America Stadium (September 6), beginning each night at 8 p.m. South Carolina viewers can watch Gov. Nikki Haley’s speech live on Monday, Aug. 27 at 10 p.m. ETV will also stream the speech live on its website, www.scetv.org.
Between speeches and events on the convention floor, Ifill and Woodruff interview political newsmakers and solicit analysis and perspective from NewsHour regulars Shields and Brooks, presidential historians and others.
