Sky News confirms U.S. Election 2020 coverage details

Sky News today announced its coverage plans for the 2020 U.S. Election.

Dermot Murnaghan will present ‘America Decides’ from a studio in Washington DC overlooking The White House from 10.00pm on Tuesday 3rd November.

Dermot will be accompanied by US Correspondent Cordelia Lynch, former aide to Donald Trump, Omarosa Manigault Newman and the former British Ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch. There will also be the academic and polling expert Ashley Koning.

Ed Conway will be based at Sky’s HQ in London with an Augmented Reality set-up.

Sky says it will have real-time results from every county in every key state across the US, as well as the results of the National Exit Poll.

This access to real-time data is the result of a close collaboration with NBC News, which, like Sky News, is also part of the Comcast Group.

This is the first US Election Sky has been a part of Comcast, and Sky News will have teams in key locations across the US including in the decisive battleground states.

Head of Sky News, John Ryley, said: “The result and subsequent fall-out of the US Election will not only decide the fate of America but will also have a ripple effect on the rest of the world.

“It is now more important than ever to provide our audiences across digital, TV and audio with clear facts, analysis and eye-witness reporting of this major event.

“Sky News is proud to be at the heart of the story with coverage from both sides of the Atlantic.”

Sky News is available to all free of charge via Sky TV channel 501, Freeview 132, and the live international streaming service on Sky News mobile and website.
