For five days, the country sat glued to the coverage of the 2020 Presidential Election. We were transfixed, anxious and exhausted.  Now, find out what it was like in the newsroom from the reporters that kept us informed during this extraordinary moment of American history.

Join for this unprecedented look behind the scenes of the most historic and consequential Election Night in American history.

Join CBS News correspondents Jeff Pegues, Major Garrett, and Nancy Cordes for this unprecedented look behind the scenes of the most historic and consequential Election Night in our history.

Nancy Cordes is CBS News' chief Congressional correspondent. She is based in Washington, D.C. and contributes to all CBS news broadcasts and platforms.

Garrett comes to CBS from National Journal as White House & Congressional Correspondent.  Prior to that, Garrett was at Fox News, where he was the Chief White House Correspondent.

Since joining CBS News, Pegues has led the Network's coverage of some of the biggest stories of the last decade.  He has provided extensive reporting on the conflict between the black community and police, and has authored a book on the issue, "Black and Blue: Inside the Divide Between Police and the Black Community." Pegues is the recipient of three Emmy Awards, numerous local and national Emmy Award nominations, the Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists, and in 2017 was part of the CBS News team that earned an Edward R.
