In 2020, PCN’s election night coverage will highlight statewide election results for president, attorney general, auditor general and state treasurer, as well as contested congressional and General Assembly races. PCN is the only network to provide statewide coverage of this kind.
Prior to Pennsylvania’s June 2 presidential primary and the Nov. 3 general election in 2020, PCN will air presidential candidate rallies, and forums involving statewide and congressional candidates. PCN also produces original election content, such as On The Issues, a series of in-depth interviews with candidates and newsmakers. All election content is available free on PCNTV.com or the PCN App.
PCN also produces election-themed episodes of the PCN Call-In Program and Journalists Roundtable, which goes on the road to targeted regions to feature local journalists covering contested congressional seats and Pennsylvania House and Senate races.
