CONVENTION 2000 / THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

Early Risers

August 15, 2000

L.A.'s time zone is proving difficult for national TV's morning shows. The "Today" show had to persuade former President Jimmy Carter to arrive by 5 a.m. so his interview would hit the East Coast for breakfast at 8.

Their live morning interviews had to happen at 2 a.m., said a BBC producer, an impossibility when newsmakers "were all out partying." *
