msnbc.com has plans for interactive coverage of voting results on a hyperlocal level, Charlie Tillinghast, president and publisher told Kelsey earlier today in this interview. Visitors to the site’s national map will be able to see results for both states and individual counties on election night. Not just the data for political insiders, understanding how voting is tallied on a local basis is going to be of interest to a national and local audience who want to understand the process.
In addition to the map, msnbc.com will have live video streams of national coverage from NBC News and local coverage in swing states from NBC affiliates.
Charlie was the host of today’s Beet.TV Online Video Roundtable moderated by Dan Farber, editor-in-chief of CNET News.com and Erick Schonfeld, co-editor of TechCrunch. Special thanks to Charlie and the team at msnbc.com for hosting our event.
Here’s a quick summary of the event on Portfolio.com.
