NEW YORK (AP) - The days of watching Election Night coverage on a single television set may soon be a quaint anachronism.
Americans have an array of alternatives for following returns on Tuesday night. Television news divisions are throwing everything they have into the story. People will be able to construct their own media experiences, seek out desired information instead of waiting for it, participate in conversations and hear analysis that reflects their own perspectives or none in particular.
Virtually all of the media organizations covering the election promise an abundance of information available online, from interactive maps that display state-by-state results to data from exit polls.
It's expected to be a huge night for social media. And news organizations say they will monitor the conversations and have their own journalists actively participate.
