Coldplay's A Sky Full of Stars was used in Biden's Fireworks celebrations. I'd say they're already delighted with that song being used.

It was a great speech by Biden after watching it on CNN in the small hours of the morning. It was full of hope & full of promise that the U.S. will finally be coming back towards a new beginning & a new future. Well done to Biden. Well done to all who voted for him.

Phew! Finally switching off the coverage after 5 days... thanks for the quality time together:



EDIT: Who am I kidding? Meet The Press and State of the Union are on in just a few hours...

Certainly felt like it was a new beginning I went to DC and it was so energetic.

Despite everyone knowing a call could come at any moment and the fact that the result had been obvious for quite a while, it seemed to take MSNBC by surprise...




I think there was trouble, they were anchoring from home and at one point their IFB’s went out.

Wow. Oh wow. That was some great reaction from Don Lemon on CNN about why he is happy to be an American since hearing about the election of Joe Biden & Kamala Harris tonight. It was a really wonderful & refreshing moment to watch it unfold on screen. Chris Coumo was also in agreement with him when he was with his daughter as soon as the results were announced in NYC. Well said guys.

That video also misses out the awkward long pause where they’re waiting for something to happen.


You can see that here...

Toe curling! I've watched a lot of the BBC coverage and that satellite delay in the Washington studio is a regular cause of awkward delay, talking over each other etc.

The announcement seems to have been made with less experienced news presenters here. The guy in London is especially bad, rabbit caught in the headlight etc.

I assumed the gap was an opt point? Did BBC One break into programmes for the announcement?

To be honest it seemed that most of the UK teams were rabbits caught in headlights: the BBC were slow, clearly weren't expecting the result when it did come so had the 'B Team' on air and the delays between London and Washington were just awkward when trying to call the election meanwhile on Sky, Adam Boulton couldn't get his words out properly

In short no, scroll back to the top of page 61

CNN's Election coverage proper seems to be over now, because it looks like CNN International is now producing their overnight broadcast, but with CNN USA anchors.

I find it weird though that CNNI has to hook-up with CNN USA, just to broadcast their self-produced program.

Kay Burley is ending with a montage of the last week so I would assume that that is Sky News' US Election coverage over. Kay mentioned she's coming back today(?)

Would expect after Sophy Ridge on Sunday for the Glass Box to take over from Washington
