UAA Student Media to cover Democratic National Convention
by Kathleen McCoy |
UAA Student Media will take a lead role August 25-28 at the Democratic National Convention when KRUA reporter Rich Stromberg heads to Denver to cover the event for KRUA 88.1 FM and The Northern Light. KRUA/The Northern Light will be one of the only news organizations reporting directly from the convention with live daily updates daily.
The Northern Light will post a daily blog and photos from the convention at www.thenorthernlight.org/democraticcaucus. Tune in or log on as we follow the Alaska state Democratic delegation and report directly from the convention floor at Denver's Pepsi Center August 25-27 and August 28 from Invesco Field at Mile High where Barack Obama will deliver his acceptance speech to an on-site crowd of more than 75,000.
Reporter Rich Stromberg is a senior journalism student at UAA currently working as a news reporter and the political correspondent for KRUA. He worked as a photographer and reporter for The Northern Light in 2004 and 2005.
Join KRUA and The Northern Light this week as we bring your coverage of local, state and national politics leading up to the November election.
