We're looking ahead to a long Tuesday night. Maybe it won't be long as in late, but it will be long as in not much time to take a break! Election nights are a big deal in the news businesses. Trying to juggle getting you the most up-to-date numbers, tracking down the candidates, figuring out graphics, arranging in-studio guests and planning crew assignments takes a bit of coordination. We spend weeks planning and making phone calls to county clerks, elections offices, candidates and their staffs - and nothing ever goes according to plan! We're adding several new elements to our coverage this primary, which I hope you'll enjoy. Not only will we be striving for as many interviews with the candidates as possible, providing analysis and giving you the latest results on-air and on our web channel, we'll also be bringing you live extended coverage on My Network TV (13.2 digital/Cox Cable 676) with our news crews and analysis by WIBW Radio's Raubin Pierce and former Kansas House Speaker Kent Glasscock. The coverage will also be streamed live at www.wibw.com
. Plus, we'll have a special live chat going on the site and several of us will provide updates via Twitter. If you haven't already go to www.twitter.com
, create your account, then do a search for "wibw" and click on those of us you want to follow! For Ralph and I, it will be multitasking at its best - but it's the kind we enjoy... and we hope you do, too!
