Washington Post and Newsweek prepare websites for convention coverage

WashingtonPost.com and Newsweek.com are to use a combination of live streamed video from mobiles and ‘social media’ correspondents to cover this week’s Democrat convention and September’s Republican convention in the US.

According to a report from Poynter.org, the WaPo site will feature seven hours of live video content from the conventions a day.

Reporters for both sites will stream live coverage of the conventions using mobiles to a special Convention ’08 channel complete with a live discussion forum for readers, whose questions and comments will be fed back to reporters and interviewees.

A raft of ‘non-traditional’ correspondents will also feature on WaPo.com during the conventions including Ariana Huffington from The Huffington Post, Markos Moulitsas from Daily Kos and Steve Grove from YouTube.
