OFFICIAL GOOGLE POST: Live coverage of the GOP Convention on Google News

This is a repost from the Official Google Blog:

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 10:43 AM

The Republican National Convention is underway in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Google News is taking you there. Well, maybe not literally there, but as close as we can get you! For the duration of the convention, you can watch live streaming of the activities on a player located on the special Elections section of Google News. (It’s also embedded just below this sentence.)

Live Streaming by Ustream

We’re working with Ustream.tv to stream the coverage live at the following times:

Tuesday, September 2: 6:20 – 10:05 p.m. CDT
Wednesday, September 3: 6:20 – 11:20 p.m. CDT
Thursday, September 4: 6:20 – 10:15 p.m. CDT

If you miss some of the speeches, highlights from the convention will be broadcast at other times all week long.

I’m excited that I can watch the convention, alongside ongoing news coverage, from the first balloon to the last confetti.
