Election Day will be riveting! But why make it stressful with commentators yelling at each other and trying to “read tea leaves” all day?
Southern California’s public media organizations have a day’s-worth of local and national coverage on our television channels and social media platforms that provide all the news, minus the noise.
On the line-up:
- On PBS SoCal 1, PBS NewsHour will start its live coverage, anchored by Judy Woodruff,at 5:00 p.m. It will also be available to stream live on our website, on the PBS app, and on some social networks.
- KCET will feature BBC World News’ two full hours of live election coverage from anchor Katty Kay starting at 6:00 p.m. Along with coverage from Washington D.C., the BBC will also be gauging reaction from around the world.
- And on the national front, Link TV will host a live election night special from Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman starting at 4:00 p.m. As polls close around the country, Goodman, and co-hosts Juan González and Nermeen Shaikh will be joined by The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill for a roundtable discussion with guests across the country.
And on our social platforms:
- You’ll find student-created content on PBS SoCal’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts. In collaboration with PBS NewsHour’s Student Reporting Lab, we’ll highlight the experience of first-time student voters.
- Meanwhile, KCET’s award-winning SoCal Connected will offer up reporting on KCET’s Instagram from various polling locations across Southern California throughout the day. Look for coverage on KCET’s Instagram page starting at 8:00 a.m.
