Primary '08 - What's in a Night?

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!
