Convention preview

Just got out of a quick production meeting in advance of this weekend's DFL convention in Rochester. We're going to do pretty much the same thing online as we did with the GOP convention. That is, we'll provide a live stream of the podium for the duration of the convention, starting at 10 a.m. on Friday...through the entire lengthy gubernatorial battle on Saturday, and the other constitutional offices on Sunday.

Gary Eichten and his band of merry political reporters will do Midday on Friday from Rochester. And they'll be cut-ins through the day on Saturday. No radio coverage is planned on Sunday. A slight complicating factor is a pledge drive begins on Thursday. The radio stream will also be available online, so you'll get a choice of what you want to listen to.

My job is concentrating on the online portion of things. I'm interested in whether you found any value in the live stream for the GOP confab?
