Convention on the air 

On TV

All the Colorado Springs TV stations will have crews in Denver reporting from the convention, likely bringing back local angles and side stories to spice up reports from their national counterparts.

PBS (Channel 6 on Comcast) will provide gavel-to-gavel coverage each night. Though as of press time it was unclear what will be carried, and when, by each major network, here are speeches to watch for:

Monday: Michelle Obama, Sen. Obama's wife

Tuesday: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton

Wednesday: the vice-presidential nominee

Thursday: Sen. Barack Obama

On the Web

There won't be any shortage of news coverage for the convention, and many daily newspapers will try to outshine each other with their live-blogging capabilities.

But if you're looking for a little perspective with your news, you should be encouraged that more than 100 blogs will have credentials at the convention. The full list is at demconvention.com/credentialed-blogs, but a few you might want to check out include:

BlogHer (blogher.com), a community for and guide to blogs for women;

Colorado Independent (colorado independent.com), a progressive, Colorado-focused blog edited by longtime Indy editor and columnist Cara DeGette;

Daily Kos (dailykos.com), a prominent blog focused on progressive issues;

Grist Magazine (grist.org), offering stories and commentary on scientific and environmental issues;

The Raw Story (rawstory.com), an "alternative news nexus" that also offers original content.

  • You'll have many choices on TV and even with live blogs.
