BBC World Service - Live From Arizona, Nov 1-2
The BBC Newsday team will be here in Phoenix as part of its coverage of the U.S. Presidential election— to gauge what Arizona residents have on their minds on the eve of the election during a live, special edition of BBC’s Newsday on 91.5 KJZZ, Thu., Nov. 1, 8 p.m. – 1:30 a.m.
BBC hosts Lerato Mbele and Nuala McGovern and will be putting Valley residents at the heart of the show’s global news content as they broadcast live from a local family home.
From the economy, the deficit and healthcare, to immigration and foreign policy, Newsday hosts will ask Arizonans how these issues affect their day-to-day lives and what they really think about the people in charge setting the political agenda.
KJZZ Reporter Nick Blumberg will also contribute a report about the sentiments of Arizona’s senior voters and KJZZ Fronteras: the Changing America Desk Reporter Michel Marizco will report live from Tucson on how border issues are playing out in the election.
