KBDI will provide nightly ‘Snapshot’ of the DNC


DENVER – (August 19, 2008) – Looking for just a snapshot of stories with political and social perspectives from the historic Democratic National Convention? 

KBDI-Channel 12 is providing exactly that.

Snapshots from the DNC, a 30-minute program airing nightly at 9:30 p.m. on Channels 12 and 12.1 immediately following convention coverage with CBS4, will cover convention events as well as behind-the-scenes stories for viewers.

“Our goal is to a snapshot of the variety of events from inside and surrounding the convention – everything from Rock the Vote Concert and the American Presidential Experience to caucus meetings and interviews from the convention floor,” Dominic Dezzutti, Snapshots co-executive producer, said. 

Produced exclusively by KBDI, stories inside and outside the DNC arena will be covered as well as off-site events, such as the local celebrations of the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech and the 88th anniversary of women’s suffrage.

“KBDI has had the DNC covered for weeks – with coverage on our public affairs programs,” Dezzutti said.  “Mayor John Hickenlooper and former Mayor Wellington Webb have been guests on The Aaron Harber Show-DNC Specials and the DNC has been a frequent topic of Colorado Inside Out” and “Studio 12.”

CBS4 News Coverage on Channels 12 and 12.1

CBS4 News and KBDI will co-produce live DNC coverage from 7 to 9:30 p.m. each evening of the convention.  The coverage will be anchored by KCNC’s Jim Benemann and Karen Leigh, with analysis by KBDI’s Aaron Harber.

Other Convention Week Coverage

The third installment of The Aaron Harber Show – DNC Series will air Sunday, Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. 

Recaps of the convention will be included in a special Friday evening lineup on August 29.  Colorado Inside Out, with host Raj Chohan and a panel including Patricia Calhoun and David Kopel, will provide a variety of views on the convention.  Independent Thinking with Jon Caldara will air at 7:30 p.m., and will feature special guests visiting during the convention.  The final one-hour program of The Aaron Harber Show-DNC Series will air at 8 p.m.
