Broadcast, cable networks to televise impeachment hearings

ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS all say they will televise next week's House intelligence committee's hearing on the possible impeachment of President Trump

The cable news networks CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CSPAN will also provide live coverage. The broadcast networks' announcement Friday that they would televise the hearing, however, gives the event an extra measure of exposure and weight with the public.

The first hearing of the House intelligence committee's hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday, with the second on Friday at 11 a.m.
