Duke, Wake have convention connections

While the commercial networks are expected to stick with their reality-show skeds, PBS will offer gavel-to-gavel coverage of the convention.

And co-anchoring from the PBS skybox inside Time Warner Cable Arena will be Judy Woodruff, who knows North Carolina. (We'd say the Tar Heel State, but she's a Duke alum).

Besides her Duke U. connections -- she served on the school's board of trustees from 1985-97 -- Woodruff is married to a Wake Forest alum. That would be Bloomberg Washington editor Al Hunt, who will also -- no doubt -- be on-the-job here in September.
