AP to debut blog at 2004 political conventions

The Associated Press will debut its first blog at the Democrat and Republican political conventions in Boston and New York.

Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Walter Mears and Washington Post reporter Nancy Benac will provide running commentary, insight and news tidbits from both conventions.

Mears and Benac bring a deep knowledge of politics and conventions to the blog. Mears has reported from every convention since 1964 and Benac has covered 10 conventions. Political databank editor Sam Hananel will assist the two.

Subscribers to AP's premium election services, AP Politics and AP Election Online will have access to the blog, which will be active the Sunday prior to the opening of the conventions and run through the final balloon drop Thursday night. In Boston, the blog will run July 25-29. In New York City, it will run from Aug. 29-Sept 2.
