The Democratic National Convention kicks off Monday, the first time the Democratic Party has held its presidential convention in Philadelphia since 1936.
NBC10 and NBC10.com will provide comprehensive around-the-clock coverage of the weeklong event, which is widely expected to culminate Tuesday in the nomination of Hillary Clinton as the party's candidate in the Nov. general election.
NBC10 news broadcasts will be live from inside the Wells Fargo Center each day. Those broadcasts will be 4-7 a.m., 11 a.m., 4-6:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. Anchors Jim Rosenfield, Jacqueline London, Tracy Davidson, Vai Sikahema, Keith Jones and political reporter Lauren Mayk will be inside the arena and be part of live, hourlong specials at 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Outside the convention, NBC10.com reporters Vince Lattanzio and Brian X. McCrone will be writing about the protests and activists, the places delegates go after hours, and how visitors and residents are mingling and making a buck off the political mega-gathering.
NBC10’s DNC team will be sharing new information and moments not only on TV and on NBC10.com, but also through social media. Keep an eye out for Facebook Live broadcasts on the NBC10 Philadelphia Facebook page and tweets from the @NBCPhiladelphia team with the latest updates about the race.
