For those who are going through election withdrawal, TV Guide magazine business editor Stephen Battaglio's new ebook, Election Night: A Television History, from NBC Publishing, will give you enough election related fodder to get you through the next four years. Battaglio's ebook offers his take on the evolution of presidential Election Night broadcasts from 1948 to present, combined with footage from the NBC News archives and commentary from news anchors including Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert and Brian Williams. The enhanced edition features more than an hour of video that includes TV appearances from presidents like Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton and Obama. And for those who want to relive this year's Election Night, NBC Publishing has released that chapter for free this month.
