A huge election night means a lot of drama and chaos and general madness, and a lot of those folks who are looking for the least partisan analysis and breakdowns of what’s going on like to turn to PBS and its “NewsHour” program for its comparably calm reporting.
It’s a good thing, then, that in addition to being freely available over the air everywhere in the U.S., PBS will provide streaming options that are as easy to deal with as they come.
Starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, you’ll be able to stream all of PBS NewsHour’s coverage of the 2018 midterm election results on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Ustream. No logins required anywhere. Just click on any of those links and you’ll find what you need.
The PBS NewsHour election results show will be anchored by Judy Woodruff and feature the standard array of guests like PBS correspondents Yamiche Alcindor, Amna Nawaz, William Brangham, Jeffrey Brown, and John Yang, along with columnists Mark Shields and David Brooks and many, many others.
PBS will also coordinate with local PBS and NPR stations for coverage of various state and local races around the country, which is something you probably won’t get too much of from the cable networks on Tuesday night.
If you find yourself in the mood for other styles of TV news coverage of the midterms tonight, you can also stream pretty much any of the other networks that are devoting wall-to-wall coverage to the midterms.
