Undecided Voters Invited to WDJT to Watch Last Presidential Debate, Participate in On-Air Discussion

Milwaukee CBS affiliate WDJT has invited a group of undecided voters to watch the final Presidential debate Monday night and participate in the post-debate newscast.

The station assigned an outside research company to recruit the voters, looking for an equal representation of parties and demographics. The group will be on WDJT’s evening newscast after the debate concludes. WDJT will also air viewer comments about the debate from Facebook and Twitter during the evening newscast.

Michele McCormack will host a half-hour webcast with the undecided voters that will be streamed on the station’s website after the newscast concludes. The webcast will be broadcast on “Eye to Eye,” WDJT’s political affairs program, on Sunday. [h/t TVNewsCheck]

Transitioning to HD, WDJT Cancels Newscast

In switching to high definition over the weekend, Milwaukee CBS-affiliate WDJT cancelled its 10 p.m. newscast on Saturday to allow its engineers time to work on the transition.

At 10 on Saturday, WDJT aired an update featuring anchor Michele McCormack (right), who announced that the station would be running a Best Of special in place of its regular half-hour newscast.

“We are in the finishing stages of getting our news to broadcast in high definition,” McCormack told viewers on Saturday.  “Tonight, our engineers are changing out a lot of equipment in our control room.  Because of that, our news will not be shown tonight.”

WDJT’s 10 p.m. newscast was back on Sunday night.
