BOISE - KTVB-TV has partnered with Facebook for a new Election Day live event, called #50states.
Using the social media giant's Facebook Live video service, one media outlet in each state will produce a 15-minute live video centered on the presidential election. The content will be featured on Facebook's Election 2016 site on Tuesday, and include the hashtag #50states.
KTVB is the official broadcast partner for Idaho, and will provide live election coverage and analysis.
Our 15-minute Facebook Live coverage began at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, and will include a live interview with Sen. Jim Risch (R - Idaho) from the Cathedral of the Rockies, a polling place in downtown Boise. We will also have in-studio analysis with KTVB political analyst Dr. Jim Weatherby.
We want you to get involved. Simply send a question or comment in the comment section of the Facebook Live post and we will pass it along to our guests. Whether it's about local or national politics, we would love to hear from you.
