Bloomberg TV is the latest network to slate 2012 convention coverage. Not surprisingly, its coverage will focus on economic issues, and will originate from the “Bloomberg Link” event space being set up in both Tampa and Charlotte.
Trish Regan will be the channel’s lead anchor for the conventions, while Charlie Rose will host his eponymous PBS and Bloomberg TV program nightly, in addition to his duties on “CBS This Morning.” Regan will anchor “Street Smart” every weekday from 3-5 PM, with nightly specials running from 9-10 PM each night, except the last night of each convention when it will run from 8-11 PM. The channel will also livestream its coverage online as well as events being held at the Bloomberg Link.
Bloomberg Washington editor Al Hunt, Bloomberg TV political analyst Matthew Dowd, Bloomberg View columnist Margaret Carlson, White House correspondents Hans Nichols and Julianna Goldman, along with chief Washington correspondent Peter Cook and Washington correspondent Meghan Hughes will all contribute to the channel’s coverage.
