"Most Networks Trim Convention Coverage"

NEW YORK (AP) - The national political conventions clearly aren't what they used to be, but PBS' Jim Lehrer isn't sure many people in television news recognize what they've become.

Contrary to his broadcast competitors, Lehrer will be on the air for three prime-time hours each night of next week's Democratic convention from Boston. He'll do the same thing with the Republicans in a month.

"I'm not the least bit worried that we won't have anything to talk about," he said.

TV viewers who want to follow the conventions this summer will have plenty of choices - perhaps more than ever before. C-SPAN, CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC all plan extensive, even gavel-to-gavel coverage.
