UBN President and Radio Personality Tony Sweet explains that “UBN Radio is a place that combines Reality Radio with honesty and integrity…without limits. My vision has always been for it to be an international Internet television and radio station that would take us into the new age of technology and media, and I believe we’re accomplishing that in a way that educates, inspires and makes people think, so we are honored to be a part of this historical event and to bring it to our listeners”.
Coverage shall include the top 10 candidates, and also those who meet the minimum threshold of one percent. Both groups will be moderated by CNN anchor and chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper.
