Convention Coverage with NPR News and PBS NewsHour

Stay tuned to WCQS for live coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions from NPR News and PBS NewsHour. The RNC is July 18 - 21, with coverage beginning each night at 8. The DNC is July 25 - 28, with coverage starting at 8 each night.

For the first time ever, NPR News and PBS NewsHour are teaming up to offer Special Coverage of the 2016 Republican and Democratic National Conventions in collaboration, featuring one team of journalists and one broadcast. This approach is a first for public media.

Our convention specials will be hosted from the Convention cities, and will include live podium speeches; expert analysis; and interviews with news makers, delegates, and NPR and PBS NewsHour reporters and editors inside and outside the venue.

PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill will anchor the special coverage each evening, along with NPR host Rachel Martin. NPR's National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson, Senior Editor Ron Elving and Political Editor Domenico Montanaro will be featured analysts. NPR's Congressional Reporter Susan Davis will report from the floor along with PBS NewsHour's Correspondents John Yang and Lisa Desjardins.

That's coverage of the Republican National Convention July 18 - 21 and the Democratic National Convention July 25 - 28 at 8 o'clock each night on WCQS. Join us.
