Starting with the Republican and Democratic National Conventions in August, the journalistic flurry culminated in record traffic last week on US election day. The quantity and quality of Election Day liveblogs was tremendous, and we strongly recommend you take a look at how newsrooms provided informative live commentary, coverage and analysis. We’ve decided to use our new reporting analytics to provide some insight into just how popular and engaging live coverage has become.
