CBS News to Stream Election Results on Its YouTube Channel

CBS News will begin live-streaming results from Tuesday’s midterm elections on its YouTube channel at 9 p.m. ET as part of its partnership with the video site and its parent, Google.

A Google Moderator session is also being held on the CBS News YouTube channel, whereby users can submit comments and questions, with the top-voted content possibly appearing on-air.

As part of the partnership between CBS News, Google, and YouTube, the network has already been highlighting election trends mined from data from the search engine and the video site, as well as keeping tabs on Google Trends and Insights for Search.

Ramya Raghavan of YouTube News and Politics posted on the YouTube Blog that nine of the top 10 searches on Google thus far Tuesday are related to the elections.
