This is the first part of ABC's Election Night Coverage from 1972. The quality is not the best but it is not my fault, it happens to be 39 years old! This is the first twenty min of the coverage, I cut out the 7:22-7:29 footage I will upload it separately, Sam Donaldson is in charge of that

The anchormen are Howard K. Smith and Harry Reasoner, who were on opposite sides of the political spectrum, so you can feel the awkwardness. Also shown is Frank Reynolds and Tom Jarell who were the two main network correspondents for the candidates. This also includes commercials, but ABC only had two sponsors Ford Motors and JC Penny.

I also have CBS's Coverage from EN 1972 as well, and I will upload both parts at the same time, it is only 2 hrs and has local segments. This is 4 hrs and 45 min and has no local breaks.
