By Brian 

“CNN’s Multi-Platform Coverage Delivers Election Results to World,” the network’s Election Night press release declares.

America Votes 2006 will start at 7pm with Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Lou Dobbs and Paula Zahn in NYC. They’ll be using the News Wall to show election results.

At midnight Larry King will host a two-hour broadcast. From 2 to 5am, “CNN will continue offering live updates through the night,” though the details are unclear. American Morning will start at 5am Wednesday.

On the Web, “CNN Pipeline will carry live reports of election results, as well as analysis from CNN correspondents. Additionally, CNN Pipeline will stream concession and victory speeches from races across the country in their entirety, as well as provide live coverage from the CNN E-lection Nite Blog Party.”

CNNI will simulcast CNN/U.S. starting at 7pm. HLN will stick with normal programming.
