On November 3, Wanda Wisdom hosted a live webcast on wandawisdom.com, providing campy Election Night news coverage. Hundreds of viewers from around the world tuned in, called in, chatted, and partied with their favorite drag queen, as election results came in. Here are some of the highlights:
• The webcast lasted a total of 4.5 hours.
• It was seen on 558 computers (the actual audience was larger, because many people watched with friends and at Election Night parties).
• We heard from viewers throughout the United States, as well as England, Ireland, France, Spain, The Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Italy, and other parts international!
• Viewers participated in a live chat room, alongside the webcast, asking questions, and offering thoughts about the results.
• A live interactive poll allowed listeners to participate in the fun, and share their opinions.
