TODAY: Ustream is the destination for Election Day coverage

Posted on by

Ustream has the most comprehensive coverage online — or anywhere. And just like we did with the Mars Rover landing, we’re expecting a lot of viewers this Election Day as they increasingly turn to the Internet for the immediacy of news and information and an interactive experience.

Ustream has teamed up with some of the country’s leading news organizations to bring you real-time results and analysis, on-the-ground reports and exclusive behind-the-scenes access inside newsrooms. We’ve got an eclectic array of perspectives and commentary, as well as live monitoring of polling stations from Video the Vote volunteers in key battleground states. With so many choices, you can truly build your own news experience.

We’ll be adding to the Election Day lineup throughout the day, but here’s a rundown as of Tuesday morning:

  • Six streams from PBS NewsHour, including in-studio interviews with political insiders, historical campaign footage, a live newsroom cam, a closed captioned stream and two hatcams dispatched to Obama and Romney headquarters in Washington, D.C.
  • Seven hours of live coverage from CBS News with Scott Pelley, Bob Schieffer, Norah O’Donnell, John Dickerson and correspondents in battleground states.
  • Hours of coverage from WSJ Live starting at 8 p.m. EST. Guests include Rudy Giuliani, Gov. Bill Richardson, Rep. Dennis Kucinich and Karl Rove.
  • Live election monitoring from Video the Vote volunteers across the country.
  • WGBH with special election night episode of daily news magazine show ‘Greater Boston’
  • UPI Live with all-day coverage featuring panel discussions, reports from Obama campaign headquarters in Washington, D.C. and the White House.
  • Freedom Foundation with live results and analysis of national and Washington state races.
  • And another appearance by our good friends at “Live Drinking” with Election Night festivities.
