CBS is a major broadcast network with a mainstream morning show, variety and talk programing during the day, straight news program in the early evening, and a wide range of primetime offerings.

Major Event Broadcasts

CBS airs extensive coverage of all major political and newsworthy events, including primary debates, general election debates, Presidential speeches, press conferences, and election night coverage. 

The amount of time CBS spends covering any major event depends on how important it is. For example, a general election debate between the Democratic and Republican nominees will get brief coverage before and after the event while a hastily announced Presidential press conference may only receive minimal coverage outside of the event itself. 

When there is a major debate, CBS will bring together a team of journalists and political pundits to discuss what they think will happen during the debate and then bring them back on the air to discuss how they felt the debate went at the conclusion of the event. 

CBS also hosts exclusive primetime townhalls with major political candidates and other top personalities.

Election night coverage on CBS is led by "CBS Evening News" anchor Norah O'Donnell, with help from "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan, senior political analyst John Dickerson, and political correspondent Ed O'Keefe.  Other commentary will come Major Garrett, Reince PriebValerie Jarrett, and Nancy Cordes. 

Morning Broadcasting

CBS This Morning is CBS's premiere morning show. The show, hosted by Gayle King, Anthony Mason, and Tony Dokoupil, spends two hours each morning discussing major news of the day along with more lighthearted segments. The hosts interview major players in the political and entertainment world. 

Primetime Broadcasting

CBS's flagship news program is CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell. It is a straight news program that discusses the major stories happening on a given day in the United States and throughout the world. 

Sunday Morning Broadcasting

CBS's Sunday Morning political affairs program is Face The Nation with host Margaret Brennan. The hour long program is split between interviews with major political players in Washington, D.C. and throughout the country and panel discussions with political pundits representing a broad spectrum of the political landscape.
