    Greetings all, and welcome once again to the WBGO Blog. Most of you may know me as the host of Sunday Morning Harmony, and many of you may know me as WBGO's full-time fill-in announcer. It's the second "title" that brings me here tonight; being in for Awilda Rivera. However, this evening is obviously not a traditional evening here at Jazz 88. Awilda's not here, and I'm not on air.

    Why? So we may bring you around the clock coverage of the election. Thus, I am taking this opportunity to not spin tunes for you, rather - give you a taste if what it's like here as the WBGO news team goes full throttle and to give you a behind the scenes look at what and how they do so as you listen.

    Andrew Meyer preps the night…

    If you're listening (hopefully you are. click the "listen now" button above, eh!), WBGO's Andrew Meyer is your host this evening, as he's joined by Seton Hall political analyst Joe Marbach.

    Also on board we have Monica Miller as she covers the McCain campaign from Robbinsville. Terry Sheridan is with the Obama campaign as well as the Lautenberg campaign in New Brunswick, NJ. Mary Fuchs covers Dick Zimmer in Bridgewater, as does Jim Crimaldi covers Leonard Lance also from Bridgewater. Jen Poyant is covering Linda Stender from Clark and Eugene Sonn is in Mount Laurel covering John Adler.

    Earlier today, WBGO's Program Director sent me a few images taken at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Montclair.
