Our social press makes up a huge part of the day on TV4, so we know our viewers are with us. In this special programme, we offer a rich pool of experts who can provide in-depth knowledge and study. We believe it is extremely important in this election to help viewers understand how the outcome of the election affects the world, says Joanna Thoulin Bratten, Director of Current Affairs Programs on TV4.
During the fall, TV4 will focus on the 59th US presidential election, between incumbent President Donald Trump (Republicans) and Joe Biden (Democrats). TV4Nyheterna, Nyhetsmorgon, Efter Fem and Malou Efter Tio will constantly monitor the primaries, debates and campaign escalation.
The highlight will be the additional broadcast of the elections on TV4, which begins at 05.50 on November 3 and continues until 19:00 on November 4. Four pairs of experienced presenters take turns broadcasting for 1.5 days.
They are assisted by expert commentators Marcus Oskarson, Rolf Pursried and Elizabeth Frerot who analyze the latest numbers, the candidates’ campaign numbers and other interesting events during the election campaign. Reporters Ann Tiberg and Stefan Borg are on site in the US, reporting live with the latest news from New York and Washington, D.C., respectively.
This choice of fate is more dramatic than it has been in many years and also highly polarized. This is why it is important to have accurate coverage as we analyze election campaigns, debates and the latest numbers. Host Jenny Stromstedt said it would be interesting to watch this world-class event live with viewers.
