That’s what Big Media is calling the Comey hearing on Capital Hill, Thursday. The fired FBI Director will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee and it’s expected he’ll take some shots at President Trump, specifically conversations they may have had about Russia hacking into the U.S Election. Here’s what ABC, NPR, and SRN have all lined up for coverage.
ABC News Radio coverage begins at 10 a.m. ET and will be anchored by ABC News correspondent Aaron Katersky. Joining Katersky will be correspondent Brad Mielke on Capitol Hill, correspondent Stephanie Ramos at the White House, contributor and former FBI Special Agent Brad Garrett, and others. ABC News Radio will also provide multiple one-minute status reports throughout the day and a one-hour recap of the day’s events at 7 p.m. ET anchored by Katersky.
NPR News coverage will also begin at 10 a.m., hosted by Lynn Neary. She will be joined in-studio by Justice Correspondent Carrie Johnson, Senior Editor and Correspondent Ron Elving, National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson, Congressional Reporter Scott Detrow, and Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg. NPR will stream video of the hearing on NPR.org. NPR will offer a text version of former Director Comey’s remarks annotated with analysis from journalists across the NPR newsroom.
The Salem Radio Network’s 24/7 SRN News service coverage will be hosted by SRN News U.S. Senate correspondent Linda Kenyon, on SNN Right, the network’s longform News Channel. Additionally, Greg Clugston—SRN’s White House correspondent—will provide live updates and perspective from the White House during the hearings, and at the top-of-each hour during SRN News and TOWNHALL newscasts. Following the Comey hearing, Clugston will report from conservative Ralph Reed’s annual ROAD TO MAJORITY conference in D.C. President Trump and Vice President Pence are both scheduled to address 2017 conference attendees.
