FNC Screen Provides Gustav Viewing

fncscreen_9-1.jpgThe New York Observer’s Tom McGeveran reports on the “strange convention,” in the shadow of Hurricane Gustav.

Included on the Observer’s blog is a picture of, “the giant television screen that greets you as you enter the perimeter.” The screen belongs to Fox News, and is located outside their large tent.

We hear there were huge gatherings outside the screen today as people in St. Paul checked out the scene in the Gulf Coast region.

Related: As the RNC becomes the first convention to have its schedule affected by outside forces, FNC anchor Chris Wallace reflects on his first convention 44 years ago. He tells TV Guide’s Stephen Battaglio, that as a 16-year-old go-fer, he was focused on pursuing anchor Walter Cronkite‘s daughter.

“There was only one person that was in both convention anchor booths for CBS in 1964 — me,” he said. “And let me just say the romance with Nancy Cronkite survived the turmoil at CBS News.”
