Election Night Blog to Stream Live on Three Websites
Journalists, political pundits and others from Rostra, CityBeat and OB Rag will post throughout the evening from multiple locations
What is a live blog? Organizer Dave Maass of CityBeat says: “It’s essentially a beefed up online public chat room. It’s meant to be a fun, witty, intelligent post-game discussion of how the campaigns went. Throughout the night, we’ll be chatting, but we’ll also be posting photos and live election results. We’ll also try to track down some people wandering around Golden Hall to see if they want to sit down and be a guest for a little bit.”
Some of the bloggers will post from home, some from election parties and some from Golden Hall. The blog will stream live at sdrostra.com, sdcitybeat.com and obrag.org. The list of participants includes:
- SD CityBeat – Kelly Davis, David Rolland, Dave Maass, Jamie Pasternak
- OB Rag – Andy Cohen, Doug Porter, Frank Gormlie, Patty Jones, Annie Lane
- SD Rostra – Gayle Falkenthal, Erica Holloway, Ryan Purdy, Barry Jantz, Tony Manolatos
- Others – Seth Hall, Omar Passons, Ben Katz
Two related notes:

- Barry Jantz, a Rostra blogger and former La Mesa City Councilman, will be on KUSI with Ross Becker at 8:35PM – also live from Golden Hall.
