CBS is the first U.S. broadcast network to announce its plans to pre-empt regular daytime programming for coverage of next week’s first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry. All of the broadcast networks are expected to join cable news channels and news streaming services to cover the hearings, which will start Wednesday with the testimony of Bill Taylor, the top diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department.
CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell will lead coverage of the hearing and another one scheduled for November 15, with testimony from Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. CBS Evening News also will originate from Washington on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week. The newscast is expected to move to Washington permanently by the end of the year.
