Our trip to the RNC in Tampa is coming to a close, but we’ve spent time with so many interesting people that our memories will stay strong. We hope you’ve enjoyed the photos, tweets and blog posts that have expanded our coverage beyond what we provide live on the air two hours a day.

This is the first political convention where KPCC has used multiple ways of bringing you here without time off from work or having to take a plane ride. There are many great stories to tell and people to share. 

We trust our photos give you a more complete sense of how much goes on at a massive convention like this. For KPCC journalists, it’s particularly exciting to interact with you in these new ways. 

We welcome your tweets and retweets (@AirTalk), comments on our politics blog Represent! (, and feedback on our AirTalk segment pages. All this helps create a real-time way to connect listeners and users of social media in one big conversation. We hope you enjoy taking part in the convention with us, as much we enjoy sharing it with you.

Hope you've enjoyed our coverage! Patt Morrison heads to Charlotte, N.C., next week to cover the Democratic National Convention. 

Oh, and if you want to follow along, make sure you're following us on Instagram @KPCC and on Twitter @KPCC, @AirTalk, @Patt_Morrison
