WKAR promises to bring you an extensive amount of Election 2012 coverage, using the resources of PBS, NPR, the WKAR Radio Newsroom and Off the Record on WKAR-TV.
The action continues tonight with the first presidential debate, moderated by PBS NewsHour's Jim Lehrer. The debate is televised at 9 p.m., and streamed live here at WKAR.org.
At 8:30 p.m., NPR hosts a live chat with political blogger Frank James, Shirish Date of NPR's Washington Desk and NPR business editor Marilyn Geewax. You may submit comments ahead of the debate anytime today.
WKAR coverage online also includes interactive maps from PBS NewsHour Map Center, a political calendar from NPR and much more Election 2012 coverage at WKAR.org.
WKAR will carry all three presidential debates, the vice-presidential debate and a number of Frontline specials related to Election 2012, including The Choice, a documentary profile of both candidates (Tuesday, October 9).
WKAR Newsroom will offer coverage of local races and ballot proposals during Morning Edition and All Things Considered throughout election season. In addition, those NPR flagship news programs, along with Talk of the Nation (AM/870, 2 and 3 p.m. weekdays), will offer coverage, analysis and discussion.
On WKAR-TV, Tim Skubick and his panel of capitol correspondents will continue to discuss ballot proposals and look at other issues pertaining to the election in the weekly series. (Fridays, 8:30 p.m.)
