WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore will host the coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions for his own Current TV.
Gore will be joined by former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm -- now "The War Room" host -- former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer -- now "Viewpoint" host -- and "The Young Turks" host, Cenk Uygur, for coverage of the 2012 conventions, Current TV said.
"I'm pleased to be participating in Current TV's impressive lineup throughout the Republican and Democratic National Conventions," Gore, the Democratic nominee in 2000, said. "Cenk, Jennifer and Eliot provide the keen insight and spot-on analysis our viewers have come to expect, combined with decades of experience in public service and a deep understanding of politics. I have no doubt that our coverage will be innovative and informative, and I look forward to working with them."
The RNC is set to take place August 27-30, followed in Tampa Bay, Fla., followed by the DNC Sept. 4-6 in Charlotte, N.C.
