WORT’s Unconventional Convention Coverage

Tuesday, 21 August 2012 | Molly Stentz

The Republican National Convention begins next Monday in Tampa, Florida. And WORT will be there. We will bring you an hour of live coverage fresh from the convention each day. Rather than examine the candidates’ fashion choices, we’ll be looking at their policies. We’ll be examining their records, dissecting their platforms, and diving into the issues. You’ll hear the sounds of the convention – both inside and out. And then, the week of Labor Day, we’ll do it all again from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Please tune in. That’s weekdays at 5PM each day of the convention. Right here on 89.9 FM! more »
