RNC 2016: Monday Preview


Bryce Brimhall / Valencia Voice

The Republican Nation Convention will be in Cleveland, Ohio from July 18-21.

The Republican National Convention begins today in Cleveland, Ohio, as politicians, supporters and even protesters will make their voices heard leading up to the announcement of the presumptive Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Monday’s session is the shortest of the week, beginning at 1 p.m. EST, with Trump’s wife, Melania, headlining the first night of the convention. The theme for day one is, “Make America Safe Again.” The first order of business once the convention begins, is to codify the rules and platform for the week.

Amongst the list of speakers for Monday is Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Willie Robertson, chief executive of Duck Commander and Buck Commander, and star of “Duck Dynasty.”

However, all eyes will certainly be on Melania. The Slovenia-born Mrs. Trump hasn’t taken a major role throughout the campaign, so this will certainly be the largest stage for her to make a major contribution. Mr. Trump is scheduled to announce his wife Monday night.

The convention will be broadcast live on C-SPAN.

CBS, NBC and ABC plan coverage from 10 to 11 p.m. daily.(ET)

PBS will be on the air at 8 p.m. (ET) each night.

CNN will be focusing on the convention 24-hours a day starting at 1 p.m. (ET)

Fox News Channel will feature convention coverage each night starting at 8 p.m. (ET)

MSNBC will have over 20 hours of daily coverage of the convention.

CBS will be offering a live stream of the convention. 

The RNC will also be providing its own live stream.
