So, I was watching some of the RNC last night, and this title sequence reminded me of the old Sky Sports News titles...

RNC (go to 11:55ish if you don't end up there automatically)

The RTÉ Autumn Schedule launch on Wednesday says that RTÉ News will have Bryan Dobson & Caitriona Perry presenting the Irish coverage of the U.S. Presidential Election from Studio 3. Washington Correspondent Brian O'Donovan will be giving live analysis on the election from Washington DC along with other studio guests to give expert analysis on this year's U.S. Presidential Election. It is also the 1st time that this election coverage from RTÉ News will be available in the revamped Studio 3 since it was unveiled in January 2019.

Full coverage will also be available on the new RTÉ News app & RTÉ News channel.

Tonight's Channel 4 News had Krishnan Guru-Murthy in Wisconsin (interviewing Jacob Blake's father).

It wouldn't surprise me if he was primarily out there for the campaign trail, and possibly the election itself.

Mary Trump is doing an interview on promoting her book, about her uncle Donald Trump's rein as U.S. President, for The Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy on RTÉ One this Friday night. I suppose this interview will be done remotely as she couldn't be in the studio to do it.

Do we know about BBC plans yet? Thought Andrew Neil was brilliant last time but he seems to have a lower profile on BBC now. Likewise Katty Kay, who seems to be taking a break.

Wonder if they might ask Emily Maitlis to host - she was excellent on the touchscreen last time and she did the daytime shift after the recent UK General Election so has experience of election night hosting.

Maitlis, Kay, Sopel and Fraser.

No need to use Neil at all.

Katty isn't taking a break, she's on at 21:00 Mon-Thur,

Wonder who Sky will use now they don't have Jeremy Thompson? I think if I remember, they used Adam Boulton for the mid-term coverage but these days he seems to not be fronting most of the big events and was replaced for overnight coverage of the UK Elections by Dermot Murnaghan. Prehaps it'll be Dermot that does the overnight or potentially Mark Austin as those two are the ones that seem to get the big gigs at the moment.
Does Graham Norton have Norton Security installed on his computer?

I'd tip Mark considering he started out in the US for them.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I like the BBC's trailer for Vote 2020 with their pinball machine.
