New York — Starting on Monday, August 27th, Bloomberg Television will broadcast live from the Bloomberg Link convention headquarters at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL and the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC.
The network will feature an all-star line-up of reporters, analysts and contributors at the conventions to closely examine the key economic issues driving the race for the White House. The team will include Bloomberg Washington editor Al Hunt, Bloomberg Television political analyst Matthew Dowd, Bloomberg View columnist Margaret Carlson, White House correspondents Hans Nichols and Julianna Goldman, along with chief Washington correspondent Peter Cook and Washington correspondent Meghan Hughes. “Street Smart” anchor Trish Regan will host Bloomberg Television’s primetime specials, focusing on “The Economy Election.”
Regan will anchor “Street Smart” each afternoon from the conventions from 3-5 PM/ET. In addition, Charlie Rose will host his nightly program for PBS and Bloomberg Television from the Bloomberg Link.
“Both campaigns are laser-focused on the economy, and our team is the only one in television uniquely positioned at the intersection of Wall Street, Main Street and K Street,” said Andrew Morse, Head of Bloomberg Television in the U.S. “We will provide our viewers with answers, insight and information they simply can’t find anywhere else.”
