For the first time ever, Yahoo! News will be on the ground for both the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention with our own team of award winning journalists and producers, led by Editor-in-Chief Hillary Frey, and Washington Bureau Chief, David Chalian.
With original content, unique reporting, live streaming video, and our new program #HashOut, the Yahoo! News team will bring you up to the minute political news and informed commentary from the convention floor. Our original video programming including a live version ofNewsmakers will take you behind-the-scenes to explore the intricate details of each convention and will feature interviews with the masterminds behind both campaigns.
Other special convention programming includes “Power Players: Convention Edition” and “Who Knew?: Convention Edition,” which will explain the long-held convention traditions you’ve always wondered about. “Just Explain It: Political Edition” will provide in-depth analysis of key election issues affecting you, while “Just Explain It: Historical Moments” is a must-see for the political history buff.
