WVPB Automation Error Caused Biden Speech To End Abruptly

2020 Democratic Party Presidential Nominee Joe Biden

A West Virginia Public Broadcasting automation error caused the PBS satellite feed of Joe Biden’s speech at the 2020 Democratic National Convention to end 15 minutes early on local stations.

“We sincerely apologize for the mistake,” said Executive Director Chuck Roberts. “We are providing a variety of viewing options to make sure you have an opportunity to see the speech in its entirety.”

The speech will air on WVPB’s main channel again today at 6:30 p.m. before PBS NewsHour. If that time is inconvenient for viewers, PBS NewsHour has provided WVPB the following links to the speech to share with those who prefer to watch it on their own time.

Viewers also may access the transcript of the speech here.
