A year and counting: DNC to mark announcement anniversary

Steve Kerrigan, CEO of the Democratic National Convention Committee, will hold a media briefing Wednesday to mark the anniversary of the announcement that Charlotte will host this year's Democratic National Convention.

Kerrigan will talk to local reporters at his uptown office. He's expected to recount some of the year's milestones, including this month's announcement that the convention will be shortened from four to three days and that President will give his acceptance speech to Bank of America Stadium.

"What a year this has been, " Kerrigan said last week.

Added Mayor Anthony Foxx: "Feb. 1, 2011, will go down as an inflection point in Charlotte's history, completing our transition from 'the little city that could' to the big city that did."

Convention officials say today's will be the first of a regular series of media briefings.
