Choices are (all the US info is taken from www.tvnewser.com)

UK Broadcasters (taken from the Telegraph's website)

Those willing to stay up all night will learn who is going to occupy the Oval Office for the next four years. It’s been a hectic few months of intense campaigning, back-biting and debating – capped off with Hurricane Sandy’s diverting devastation of the US’s east coast. David Dimbleby presents the BBC’s coverage live from Washington DC as the race for the White House reaches its climax. His sidekick Emily Maitlis has brought her touchscreen across the Atlantic to show results as they come in, while the expert panel of analysts is led by BBC World News America’s Katty Kay. Later, Jeremy Vine examines how the election was won and lost. There will also be live reports from key battleground states, plus reaction from Barack Obama’s Democrat HQ in Chicago and Govenor Mitt Romney’s Republican campaign base in Boston. Over on ITV1, Alastair Stewart hosts through-the-night-coverage, while Jeremy Thompson does likewise on Sky News. If you’d prefer an unfiltered American view of proceedings, PBS America will be broadcasting coverage from their NewsHour team, led by Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff.


I personally will be flicking between Fox News, MSNBC and CNN. They will have far more reporters and pundits than the British broadcasters, plus be a lot quicker with results and rumours.MSNBC and CNN normally live stream on their websites on election night.



MSNBC - MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews anchor the network’s election night coverage beginning at 6pmET Tuesday, along with Rev. Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz, and Steve Schmidt from New York City. Chuck Todd focuses on the battleground states and Tamron Hall provides exit poll results. Melissa Harris-Perry will contribute from Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago and Chris Jansing will report from Romney headquarters in Boston.

CNN - CNN’s coverage of the Presidential election kicks off on Tuesday night at 6pmET. Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper will anchor from Washington, with Candy Crowley in Boston and Erin Burnett in Ohio. This will be CNN’s first election night anchored from Washington, where the network recently unveiled new state-of-the-art facilities.

CNN is deploying more than two dozen reporters across the country. Jim Acosta will be at the Romney campaign headquarters in Boston, while Jessica Yellin, Dan Lothian and Brianna Keilar will be at the Obama headquarters in Chicago. As usual, John King will be manning the Magic Wall.


ABC - ABC News has announced its plans for election night coverage. As we’ve already reported, ABC’s coverage will originate from Times Square Studios, home of “Good Morning America.” Led by Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos, ABC News coverage begins with a special edition of “World News” at 6:30ET/5:30CT and continuing with full election coverage from 7pmET until at least 2am. A special edition of “Nightline” will air at 2:35amET.

Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper will be at Obama election headquarters in Chicago “World News” weekend anchor David Muir will be at Romney headquarters in Boston, Katie Couric will be monitoring social media reaction throughout the evening and Barbara Walters, who has interviewed every President since Richard Nixon, will provide historical context.


CBS - “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley will lead CBS’ election night coverage next week. CBS coverage will run from 7 PM-2AM, and will utilize eight studios in the CBS Broadcast Center in New York, including Studio 57, the newest studio and the home of “CBS This Morning.”

Joining Pelley will be “Face the Nation” moderator Bob Schieffer, “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Norah O’Donnell and CBS news political director John Dickerson. In addition, Byron Pitts will report from the “60 Minutes” studio, where he will “use virtual reality models of the House and Senate to explain the impact key races.” Anthony Mason will be in Studio 57, where he will report on exit polls using “augmented reality” graphics.

Jan Crawford will be at Romney HQ in Boston, with Nancy Cordes in Obama HQ in Chicago. In the field Dean Reynolds will report from Ohio, Anna Werner will report from Nevada, Elaine Quijano will report from Florida, Barry Petersen will report from Colorado and Wyatt Andrews will report from Virginia.


Fox News - Fox News Channel will have Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier anchoring on election night, while Shepard Smith will be anchoring on the Fox Broadcast Channel.

On FNC, Kelly and Baier will be joined by senior political analyst Brit Hume, “Fox News Sunday” moderator Chris Wallace, as well as contributors Joe Trippi, Karl Rove, Juan Williams, Stephen Hayes and Kirsten Powers. “O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly and “On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren will be providing commentary, and Van Susteren will also interview Fox News contributor Sarah Palin during the evening.

Correspondent Martha MacCallum will report on exit poll data, with Bill Hemmer manning the “bill-board,” FNC’s touchscreen. Carl Cameron and John Roberts will report from Romney HQ in Boston, with Ed Henry and Wendell Goler reporting from Obama HQ in Chicago. There will also be a number of correspondents in the field (after the jump).


FOX - On the Fox Broadcast Channel, FNC contributor Ed Rollins, Democratic strategist Mary Anne Marsh, and The Hill editor A.B. Stoddard will contribute to coverage.

Online, Jonathan Hunt and Harris Faulkner and Rick Folbaum will anchor video coverage on FoxNews.com, while Rick Sanchez will anchor on FoxNewsLatino.com in Spanish.


FOX Business Network - will provide live continuous election night coverage on Tuesday beginning at 5pmET hosted by anchor and Managing Editor Neil Cavuto. FBN’s Stuart Varney and Lou Dobbs will also take part. Also, Liz Claman will report live from the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square. Gerri Willis will be live from the Romney campaign headquarters in Boston while FBN Washington Correspondent Rich Edson will provide coverage from President Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago. Also, Melissa Francis will be live from Florida and Adam Shapiro live from Nevada, two important swing states.

NBC - “NBC Nightly News” anchor and managing editor Brian Williams heads up NBC’s coverage from Rockefeller Plaza — dubbed Democracy Plaza from now through election day. David Gregory and Savannah Guthrie will join Williams at the anchor desk. Tom Brokaw looks at historical trends, Chuck Todd reports electoral storylines via a studio equipped with augmented reality, Pete Williams reports on voter irregularities, Andrea Mitchell follows key congressional races, and Lester Holt follows governor’s races and down-ballot issues. Tamron Hall is on exit poll duty for both NBC and MSNBC. Kristen Welker will report from Obama headquarters in Chicago while Peter Alexander will report from Romney headquarters in Boston.

There’ll be coverage on NBC sites theGrio.com, NBCLatino.com and if you have Xbox, you’re in luck, you can watch NBC’s coverage there too.

PBS - Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff will anchor PBS’ election coverage on Tuesday night from 8pm-midnight. The pair will be joined by “NewsHour” analysts Mark Shields and David Brooks, and Jeffrey Brown will talk about national trends with political editor Christina Bellantoni and Stuart Rothenberg. Hari Sreeivasan will man the “NewsHour” digital map center.

Senior correspondents Ray Suarez and Margaret Warner will report from the candidates’ respective campaign headquarters in Chicago and Boston. “NewsHour” will also feature comprehensive election coverage on its website, which will transition to a special election day homepage with a live blog dedicated to campaign news.

CNBC - CNBC’s election night will have a heavy focus on what’s become the number one issue of the election: the economy. CNBC’s coverage begins with a two-hour special edition of “Squawk Box” at 5pmET with Joe Kernen, Becky Quick and Andrew Ross Sorkin. Then at 7pmET, Maria Bartiromo and Carl Quintanilla anchor the network’s primetime special “Your Money, Your Vote,” with Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood reporting live from the virtual electoral map room at CNBC Global Headquarters. The primetime special will include real-time results and instant analysis from Washington to Wall Street to the vital battle ground states

On nights like this, there is only one place to be, The BBC! Both radio and TV, between the two.

Get over to my newly started Obama v Romney election night prediction thread on the Politics forum anyone who fancies a prediction.

Watch?

I guess the outcome will eventually have some effect on this country.

As a British national, I've no vote so what's the point?

It'll be in the press when it's done and dusted and I'll probably read some of it, but it's of no immediate importance to me.

Richard Bacon is a US politics geek I think. Shame he is so bad when covering home grown politics though!

Bacon's middle of the road approach will be far outweighed by the right wingers on R5, especially Pienaar who thinks Obama should not even have the vote.

None of them! I know it is important but much too late for me.

Also the title of this thread is a bit odd! "Who" should be "What channel"?

CNBC of course! I'm watching CNN right now though and have been flicking around. BBC News's coverage is dreadful and I got fed up with Sky News after a few minutes as well. Anyone else watching CNBC's coverage?

Clearly important enough for you to pass comment on!

As I wrote in another thread, I watched some of BBC1 until Jeremy Vine came on. Why do they keep using him for election coverage, he is just a joke though not funny so that is the wrong word.

I will have a listen to Radio 4 in the morning to see if there is a result, I can't work up any enthusiasm for the election anyway .

Watched BBC1 from 0500 - seemed fine. But who is Katty Kay ? I have seen her occasionally as a reporter but now she seems to be some sort of pundit on US politics (as if they didn't have enough pundits in the studio).

Saw a bit of Sky, thankfully Burley-free. Sending her to Las Vegas where there wasn't a story was a shrewd move.
