TAMPA – The proceedings from podium at the Republican National Convention in Tampa is an “important show,” but the work of the networks’ journalists happens on “around the edges,” to find the important stories  says Mark Lukasiewicz, Senior Vice President of NBC News Specials, in this video provided to Beet.TV by NBC.

He says that social media will be playing a far bigger role than ever around the conventions.  He says that Twitter and Facebook will be surfaced onto the netwworks’ coverage.
