Democracy Now! will be doing a special five-hour broadcast on November 4th from 07:00PM–12:00AM ET to bring you the 2008 election results as they come in.
The program will include live coverage of the results as the polls close, on-the-ground reports from across the country, reactions from across the globe, and running in-depth analysis and commentary from a wide range of guests you won’t get anywhere else.
On November 5th, the morning after, Democracy Now! expands to a two-hour broadcast from 08:00AM–10:00AM ET to provide complete coverage of the election outcome.
Please contact your local radio or TV station for local listings. There will also be a live video and audio stream of the show on our homepage at democracynow.org.
ELECTION NIGHT November 4th: 07:00PM–12:00AM ET
During the five hour broadcast, Democracy Now! will break away three times every hour for one-minute music interludes to allow stations to identify themselves and report on local results. The breaks will come in at 20 mins, 40 mins and 59 mins every hour.
MORNING AFTER November 5th: 08:00AM–10:00AM ET
Democracy Now! will be presented as one two-hour show with a one-minute music interlude from 08:59–09:00 so that you can run it uninterrupted. Alternatively, you can broadcast it as two stand-alone hours. (Both hours will include news headlines.)
You can download promos for our Election 2008 coverage for use on your station.
