(Politico) – Ann Romney may not make prime time during next week’s Republican National Convention.
The three major television networks â€” NBC, ABC and CBS â€” are not airing prime-time coverage of the RNC on Monday, the opening night of the convention and the night that Ann Romney has been scheduled to deliver the keynote address. So in order to get Mitt’s wife onto television, the campaign may have to scramble and reschedule her speech.
CNN, which will cover the speech, first reported earlier this week that Ann Romney is expected to headline the kickoff. The three networks all confirmed to POLITICO today that they would not be airing prime-time coverage of the RNC on Monday.
The Romney campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
UPDATE (1:23 p.m.): The networks will cover all three nights of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
Correction: An earlier update incorrectly stated that the networks would not cover the opening night of the Democratic convention. The Democratic convention, unlike the Republican convention, is only three nights â€” all of which will be covered in prime time by the networks.
