"This collaboration with TV One enables us to directly serve the Black community during this important election season - extending the reach of our journalism while tapping into TV One's loyal viewership," said Capus.

TV One's convention coverage will include appearances by noted panelists speaking on the key issues, "Best of" moments, LIVE airings of candidate speeches, along with follow-up analysis of how the candidates fared.
