Throughout the 2014 campaign season, PBS NewsHour has been reporting on some of the most exciting races directly from the field. With a week left until Election Day, revisit some of our favorite segments alongside the producers and reporters who made them happen and experts who will tell us more about what’s at stake in these contests.
This Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. EDT, PBS NewsHour will host a special live chat and live stream of four field reports from this midterm season. These segments focus on some of the most contentious races. Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill report from the ground in Wisconsin, Colorado, Iowa and Georgia.
Log on to join the event, hosted by OVEE, a social video platform. Once the screening starts, you’ll be able to chat with other viewers, as well as political producers and reporters from across the country.
PBS NewsHour’s politics team will be on hand, including Domenico Montanaro, Senior Producer for Politics; Mary Jo Brooks, Producer; Rachel Wellford, Politics Reporter/Producer; and Simone Pathe, Economics Web Editor.
Plus, we’ll be joined by two award-winning journalists who can speak to the state of the races we’re covering. Craig Gilbert is the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Washington Bureau Chief and author of “The Wisconsin Voter” blog. And Kay Henderson is the News Director at Radio Iowa and a featured reporter and commentator on Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press.”
