AP to deliver multiplatform coverage of Inauguration Day

The Associated Press will mobilize its multiplatform reporting effort, including live and interactive coverage on the AP’s Online Video Network, for the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States in Washington, D.C.

The AP produced on Election Night in November the news agency's first continuous online live video stream. The webcast of the 56th presidential inauguration will stream beginning around 7 a.m. EST, starting with live pictures. Anchored coverage will begin at about 10 a.m. on AP's Online Video Network, which distributes the news agency's video content to some 2000 Web sites of newspapers, broadcasters and other customers throughout the United States.

The webcast will also draw from the 40-camera pool feed for the parade and the swearing-in ceremony. Additional live camera shots will originate from Capitol Hill, the Washington Monument and other landmarks.

AP reporters Jason Bronis and Sagar Meghani will anchor live coverage on OVN, including reports from the parade route and the National Mall. Bronis and Meghani will be joined throughout the day by experts on presidential and inaugural history.

AP Television News also will provide unanchored coverage, from morning coffee at the White House and the swearing-in ceremony to the multicamera shots of the inaugural parade.
