I was fortunate to visit the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte on Wednesday, September 5. This was a great experience, thanks largely to the cool community center provided by MSNBC. The city was very well-prepared in terms of security and logistics. However, for those of us without credentials, there really was no public welcome center or place to get an orientation. Fortunately, MSNBC was ready, willing and able to serve as a community center for the thousands of convention delegates and international media, as well as for plain-old citizens like me.
MSNBC’s efforts paid off very well. Read here about how and why their ratings rocked during the DNC (and will continue to grow.) You will also learn about the positive experiences they provided daily for thousands of people in Charlotte, as well as millions of viewers around the world. Their nearly constant coverage and the overall MSNBC experience have clearly cemented their position (in many minds) as the world leader in all form of news – not just progressive politics. It was also the one place for thousands to turn on Thursday night after the big speeches were moved indoors (see right.)
