The media hub for the Palmetto primary

January 9, 2012 

The political media center for the South Carolina primary appears to be the College of Charleston.

Here's a list of events the school said is planned on campus:

Today: Palmetto prognosticators. CNN will have a small focus group at the college to talk about the candidates as the New Hampshire primary results arrive during the evening.

Saturday: Mike on the mike. Fox News' "Huckabe" will broadcast from the Sottile Theater and feature a forum for GOP presidential candidates answering questions from undecided voters. The forum will be taped in the afternoon and the show will air at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Jan. 16-19: You're on candidate camera. CNN will have a camera on the Cistern Yard (the college's version of USC's Horseshoe) to interview candidates and voters in Charleston. (If you want to get a look now, check out the yard's webcam.

Jan. 20: CNN stars arrive. "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" and "John King USA" are expected to go live from the Cistern Yard. (What, no Erin Burnett?)

UPDATE: Erin Burnett now also will be broadcasting her show from the College of Charleston. Power of the press, oh yeah.
