NEW YORK (AP) - YouTube is launching a dedicated presidential campaign channel that will feature live streaming video from the two parties' conventions and upcoming nationally televised debates as well as video content generated by a range of news and information partners.

YouTube's news and politics manager, Olivia Ma, says the site will serve as a one-stop hub, a single destination people can visit that will offer both the YouTube live stream and reporting and analysis from eight news organizations. They include The New York Times, Univision and BuzzFeed.

The 2012 conventions will be the first to be live-streamed over the Internet, and YouTube will serve as the official channel for both.

Republicans meet next week in Tampa, Fla., while Democrats meet Sept. 4-6 in Charlotte, N.C.
