UPDATED 6/15/22 at 1:45pm to include schedule updates

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has begun a series of public hearings.

They say their goal is to investigate what led to the riot, whether the attackers were coordinated, and why law enforcement failed to stop the breach of the Capitol.

You will have the ability to watch and listen to the hearings with live coverage and expert analysis of each of the January 6th committee’s public hearings on WITF television, radio and streaming through our website (audio stream here, video stream here).

Hearings schedule:

  • Monday June 13 at 10am
  • Wednesday June 15 at 10am CANCELLED
  • Thursday June 16 at 1pm
  • Tuesday June 21 at 1pm
  • Thursday June 23 at 1pm

Additional hearings are scheduled for the week of June 20. Timing is still to be determined. We will update once we learn more information.

Language Advisory

As with this week’s Congressional proceedings regarding the events of January 6, we expect future hearings to include video of the attack on the U.S. Capitol. NPR and PBS do not have advance details of what will be in these videos. However, past video has been full of depictions of the attack itself; including violent clashes, loud noises, shouting and profane language.  Hosts and correspondents will advise listeners and viewers of the content of these recordings ahead of and during playback. NPR and PBS will not silence or bleep the playback of these recordings, as they are a part of the historic record in these Congressional hearings.

PBS Kids Programming

On June 13 and June 15, special coverage is slated to begin at 10am which is before we normally end our daily broadcast of children’s programming.  Families are encouraged to watch PBS Kids 24/7 on WITFK 33.2 or through the PBS Kids Video app to continue viewing PBS Kids programming.
