Westward, Ho!

Lights. Camera. Conventions. On Point hits the road tomorrow morning for Denver and the Democratic National Convention.

We’ll be broadcasting live from "Radio Row" inside the Pepsi Center — and Thursday night, we’ll be at Invesco Field (along with 70,000 other people) for Barack Obama’s big speech.

We have ambitious plans: live shows both in the morning, at 10am Eastern, and in the evening, at 7pm Eastern, so that we can offer up-to-the moment coverage and fresh analysis from newsmakers and key political watchers. Folks like Arianna Huffington, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, Frank Rich of The New York Times, and many others. We’ll sit down with delegates from must-win battleground states and with foreign journalists to talk about Obama and world opinion.

And just like four years ago — if you remember our 2004 convention coverage from New York and Boston — it'll be a hectic scene, and you never know who may drop by our booth.

From Denver, we'll head to St. Paul for the Republican convention. And again, we’ll be live in the morning and evening. More on that when the time comes...

It's going to be a busy two weeks. We'll keep you posted right here — and we know you'll keep the feedback coming!
