NBC News' Craig Melvin will anchor all three evenings of coverage from NBC's Washington, DC studios and TV One's Washington Watch host Roland Martin will round out coverage with contributing segments and analysis.

Said Lucas, "By partnering with NBC News, TV One is keeping to its mission of continuing to raise the bar for the network by providing our viewers with programming that is informative and has a direct impact on their lives as well as those of their families."

"This collaboration with TV One enables us to directly serve the Black community during this important election season - extending the reach of our journalism while tapping into TV One's loyal viewership," said Capus.

TV One's convention coverage will include appearances by noted panelists speaking on the key issues, "Best of" moments, LIVE airings of candidate speeches, along with follow-up analysis of how the candidates fared.
