2012 Republican National ConventionC-SPAN will be the only place to find complete, unfiltered coverage of both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions with gavel-to-gavel coverage. However, there will be a lot coverage from the cable news networks and some select content from the big broadcast networks.


Live Stream: C-SPAN – Begins Monday, August 27. Until that time, C-SPAN will be showing the committee platform meetings.

Cable News Schedules: Fox News, MSNBC

Broadcast Networks: 10pm ET (August 28-30) – ABC, NBC and CBS will each air 1 hour from the convention on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has been a little miffed at the lack of broadcast network coverage being afford to the convention. The major contention is the decision by the networks to skip Monday prime time programming, the day when Ann Romney will be addressing the convention.
