The 2016 campaign for president has been one of the most dynamic, electric and unusual political battles of all time.
It deserves dynamic, electric, and frankly, unusual coverage on election night.
We at CNBC are planning just that: Starting at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday, we will augment our talented team of reporters and producers with nearly 100 feeds from across the NBCUniversal portfolio of channels to deliver real-time news and analysis unlike anything else on the air.
The inspiration for our coverage is the NFL's RedZone, which provides viewers with highlights from across the league by only covering when a scoring play is about to happen. Likewise, we plan to swing around the country with multiple feeds going at once on the screen, cutting in when something exciting is happening in a particular state.
The broadcast will be helmed by Carl Quintanilla, co-anchor of "Squawk on the Street" and "Squawk Alley," and "Closing Bell" co-anchor Kelly Evans in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
They will be joined by CNBC chief Washington correspondent John Harwood and chief international correspondent Michelle Caruso-Cabrera with live analysis. We will also have reporters positioned in nine states to provide on-the-ground reporting of all the major developments.
In a fast-developing election, we plan to provide fast, real-time, expansive coverage that will stand out.
By monitoring multiple feeds simultaneously, we will be able to take our viewers wherever the most compelling live action is happening, whether that's a concession speech, or a live interview with an important newsmaker.
We hope you watch! It's going to be a lot of fun.
