PBS NewsHour will present live anchored coverage of the House of Representatives’ public impeachment hearings as the hearings are scheduled.
The programming will be anchored by managing editor and anchor Judy Woodruff and will include contributions from other NewsHour reporters including Capitol Hill correspondent Lisa Desjardins, White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, and Nick Schifrin, Foreign Affairs and Defense correspondent, and more. Woodruff will be joined by Michael Allen, Managing Director at Beacon Global Strategies, LLC and Mieke Eyong, Vice President at Third Way.
“Covering impeachment hearings is how the PBS NewsHour got its start, with Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer during the Watergate hearings,” said Sara Just, Executive Producer and Senior Vice President of the PBS NewsHour. “It is as important now as it was then that we provide the audience with access to these historic developments and insight for understanding their significance.”
The NewsHour nightly broadcast will include highlights from the day’s hearings and further analysis and reporting.
