Aired Friday November 2nd, 2012 at 8:00 pm on KUED HD Ch. 7.1
For in-depth election coverage you can trust, turn to KUED for PBS Election 2012 programs exploring what’s at stake, profiling the candidates and culminating with in-depth election night coverage.
On November 2 at 8:00 p.m., the Friday before the nation votes, PBS offers an election special focusing on what's at stake on November 6th. Anchored by the PBS NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan and combining field reports and interview segments, Election 2012: What's at Stake will explore how President Obama and Governor Romney plan to address the nation's most pressing concerns: stimulating the economy, paying for Social Security and Medicare, providing affordable healthcare, reforming immigration, and protecting America's interests abroad. The broadcast will include original contributions from the PBS NewsHour, Frontline, Washington Week and Need to Know, and will be reported by many of the anchors and correspondents from these programs.
Then, on November 2 at 9:00 p.m., KUED rebroadcasts Frontline The Choice 2012. They are two men with sharply different backgrounds, views, and prescriptions for fixing the country's problems. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to tell their own stories, but in The Choice 2012, Frontline goes far beyond the headlines, on a journey deep into their worlds, among their friends, family, critics and closest colleagues, to understand what drives these men. Based on dozens of new interviews and hundreds of hours of research, Frontline’s authoritative profiles are a portrait of America in an era of uncertainty as well as a guide to the choices that lie ahead.
Spend election night with the PBS NewsHour Election Night 2012 Special Report as the news team provides the thorough analysis and thoughtful reporting that has been the hallmark of its coverage throughout the election cycle. NewsHour senior correspondents Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff co-anchor live coverage of election returns beginning at 6:00 p.m. and lasting throughout the evening until the election results are finalized.
Ifill and Woodruff will be joined by NewsHour analysts Mark Shields and David Brooks. Jeffrey Brown will sort through the voting trends with NewsHour Political Editor Christina Bellantoni and Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of the Rothenberg Political Report. Ray Suarez and Margaret Warner will be reporting throughout the evening from the presidential candidates’ headquarters in Chicago and Boston. Hari Sreenivasan will provide deeper analysis of key battleground states and talk with public media reporters throughout the evening.
