The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday, beginning with Ford’s testimony. Ford and Kavanaugh will be the only witnesses called in the hearing, and they will testify separately. 

Senate Repulicans have also hired a female special prosecutor to question Ford in order to “de-politicize” the process, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, the committee’s chairman. The attorney, Rachel Mitchell, is an experienced sex crimes prosecutor from Maricopa County, Arizona.

Watch the live on WSB TV’s livestream:

C-SPAN

You can watch the hearing without a cable subscription (and without those pesky cable news chyrons and tickers). Find the network’s stream here.

CBSN

CBSN is CBS’s 24/7 online news channel. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., it broadcasts “news and breaking stories,” and the Thursday hearing is likely to be among those breaking stories. You don’t need a subscription to watch at cbsnews.com/live.

CNN

You can watch the network’s coverage of the hearing on CNNgo, its online streaming service, without a subscription. CNN is waiving its usual cable login requirement in order to stream the hearings for free on its homepage and apps. 

Fox News

Fox News also aired Kavanaugh’s conformation hearings in full, so it’s a good bet you will be able to find Ford and Kavanaugh’s testimony on their online streaming service, Fox News Go. The network gives viewers 10 minutes free, but you must sign in with a cable subscription login after that expires. 

MSNBC

MSNBC is the third cable news giant that aired Kavanaugh’s in their entirety, and is likely to air the Thursday hearings mostly uninterrupted as well. Watch their online stream (cable subscrition required) at msnbc.com/now

Radio

News 95-5 and AM 750 WSB will have live coverage beginning at 10 a.m., and lasting through the day – including the testimony of both Ford and Kavanaugh.
