Fox News has a very well respected decision desk that is not at all like most of its operation.

Coverage plans include sleeping bags, cots, pizza and coffee.

If the polls continue to hold with Team Blue leading by double digits nationwide and five to seven points in battleground states, we'll know by 11 pm eastern. North Carolina, Florida, and Texas will h

NBC Local X has coverage on the digital subchannels of LX (which I've never watched, but apparently is the new LXTV?) coming from the KXAS studios.

Beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on November 3, LX News hosts will deliver election results from the network's new virtual reality set.  NBCLX's Storytellers who are embedded in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and Washington, D.C. will report for LX News with voters' sentiments. In addition, NBCLX's election night coverage will feature a visual artist who will live paint throughout the night.

I mean, basically, but a bit more structured and focused. Here's some background:

Like its predecessor(s?), LX is only accessible on television if you live in an O&O market. Otherwise, they really try to push OTT. I didn't know what to think about whether or not it would be successful when it launched, but the SVP of LX recently spoke excitedly about its success so far, and it's also expanding beyond its Dallas home studios, so it's clearly making some headway.

Despite broadcasting from headquarters this Tuesday night, ABC News has also gussied up the 2nd floor of Times Square for election coverage. I'd imagine GMA will originate from this space on Tuesday and Wednesday, and possibly much of their digital content.

LX is actually available here in Columbus, OH on Channel 17 here in town. It is not a full power signal but it is available outside of the NBC O&O Stations.

I'd expect the obvious states (i.e. California, New York, Oklahoma, West Virginia) to be called right away. But otherwise I think they will wait - and it could be a long wait.

I think we all know who's going to win CA and NY, but who usually gets OK, WV?  Just asking, not trying to start something.

 

NN starts at 6 tomorrow, wonder if they go overnight if needed?

And here's FNC.

 

Bret Baier and Martha McCallum are anchoring on FNC, Sandra Smith and Trace Gallagher are heading coverage on Big Fox.

Wonder why Big FOX isn't just airing Bret and Martha, their both worthy of Special Reports on Big FOX I would think...

I think FOX did it in Election 2000. They simulcasted on All FOX affialtes and of course 9/11 Fox Affialtes simulcasted FOX News Channel for 6 days + FOX News Sunday extended hour. Now I agree cause I remember Election Night 2016 my FOX Station WRAZ in Raleigh aired it the first two-hour on prime time but after the WRAL 10PM News, they didn't continue with it I think all FOX stations regardless, of a local news operation or not or outsourced to another FOX station they should air FOX Special Coverage too a full capacity, since unlike a FOX News Special Report it's anticipated election night coverage.

I'm pretty sure Fox did separate coverage in 2016 with Shep Smith on the affiliates and all the usual goons on FNC.


They did but not all FOX affialtes carried it after there 10pm newscast at least my FOX station which news is outsourced WRAL didn't. I'm gonna ask them about it and show them I have recording of them airing special reports outside of programming prime-time to expose them!!!

They can do whatever they want. They can take the national coverage, do their own, or show reruns of Two and a Half Men.

Oklahoma and West Virginia are solid Republican, though the last time WV went blue was in 1996 for Bill Clinton.

The vote totals have never been completed on election night.

 

I think the general consensus is that no one wants this to be dragged out for days/weeks. Hopefully, it's not close (regardless of who people vote for) and we can move on from this.

Couple of quick points...

 

Shep is anchoring CNBCs continuing coverage of the election. My guess is he took over at the top of the hr (Midnight). 
 

NewsNation is still on live (via the app anyway, not sure about them being live on WGN America). Nevertheless, it’s good they’re going beyond the 6 hrs of coverage they previously announced.

7. They've been on since 6pm/CT. This is hour 8 now.

 

No telling if they'll leave after Trump speaks......

Well I was wrong... They ended the stream before 3am.

Saw that too. I wonder if it will be optional for the stations or if he was talking about NBC News Now or MSNBC.
