Just as it has since 2000, "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" will broadcast from the Democratic National Convention in September, Comedy Central announced on Monday.

The satirical newscast will tape Tuesday, Sept. 4 through Friday, Sept. 7 from the nearby Joe & Joan Martin Center in Charlotte, N.C., bringing 125 production staffers from New York with it.

"The Daily Show" also plans to broadcast from the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., in August, a representative for Comedy Central told Yahoo News, though details have yet to be finalized.

The episodes airing during the 2012 DNC will include guest interviews as well as reports from the convention floor at the Time Warner Cable Arena from Samantha Bee, Wyatt Cenac, Jason Jones, Al Madrigal, Aasif Mandvi, John Oliver and Jessica Williams.

This marks the ninth time the program has taken its political coverage on the road, Comedy Central said. "The Daily Show" broadcast from the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, the 2000 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles, 2004's DNC in Boston, 2008's DNC in Denver and RNC in St. Paul.

The show also did special mid-term election remotes in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

The program won Emmy and Peabody awards for its year-long "Indecision 2000" coverage of that election.
