About Aircasting

Aircasts are live streamed and recorded videos that include viewer input and are archived in their related posts. We believe that Aircasting is a key component of any elections Hub. Hub visitors can view all the scheduled and archived Aircasts under the “onAir” tab. If an Aircast is streaming at the time that a Hub visitor lands on the home page, then it’s widget will appear and be playing on the home page.
