Kyra Phillips to Lead HLN's Convention Coverage


HLN anchor Kyra Phillips, who
recently moved over from the flagship CNN network
, will lead HLN's
convention coverage, it was announced Wednesday.

Phillips will anchor live reports from the political conventions in Tampa,
Fla., and Charlotte, N.C. during Morning Express with Robin Meade and Evening
and throughout the day.

HLN's coverage will focus on delegates and voters rather than politicians'
podium speeches, with features like "Moms Matter 2012," where
Phillips and a panel of delegate moms attending the RNC and DNC conventions
will discuss issues important to their vote.

In "The Voters Next Door" segment, HLN will profile undecided voters
in Florida with weekly updates on their views on the candidates through
Election Day.
