LOS ANGELES -- NBC and PBS will cooperate on next year's national political conventions under an unusual arrangement that will put Tom Brokaw and other NBC correspondents on PBS' "McNeil/Lehrer Report."
Under the plan announced yesterday, the PBS program will come on the air around 7 p.m. with convention coverage. Anchors Robert McNeil and Jim Lehrer will be reporting from a studio in the convention city. Brokaw and the other NBC correspondents will be at the convention hall.
At 9:30 or 10 p.m., Brokaw and the NBC personnel will do their own program for their network while PBS maintains its coverage.
