such as Vyve Broadband. Their vision is steadfast
and fearless, evidenced most recently by Allen's

the independent's original movie library.

making sure C-SPAN is the first to really focus
on the candidates. The programmer already
has shown several Road to the White House
2016 events. Big accomplishments for the
co-chiefs in the past year include authenticating
streams for all 3 C-SPAN nets and a
major revamp of C-SPAN's website. The public
affairs programmer's leaders also add nice
personal touches to the networks, from Kennedy's
notable influence over musical choices

well-researched companion book to the net's
" First Ladies " series.
