Special Coverage: Senate Impeachment Trial

Beginning Tuesday, January 21, New Hampshire Public Radio will carry special coverage of the impeachment trial of President Trump, and related programming from NPR. The U.S. Senate hearings will be available on-air and streaming through

NHPR is committed to bringing listeners uninterrupted special coverage of this historic moment - gavel to gavel. It is part of the station’s civic duty to keep New Hampshire’s audience informed - and that is especially true during news events such as these.

Mary Louise Kelly will host the first two days’ proceedings for NPR. Tune in beginning at 12 noon, when the first item of business will be to establish the Senate’s rules for the trial.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has suggested the process could run up to six days a week, for several weeks.  As events unfold, NHPR will offer complete coverage of the entire proceedings, gavel-to-gavel.

The times and duration of live coverage are fluid and may impact regular NHPR programming on a daily basis. On days when there is special coverage of the Senate trial, NHPR will air coverage until its conclusion. To make sure listeners can still get caught up on news of the day, on trial days NHPR will air additional hours of All Things Considered from 7-9 pm. The Exchange replay will be moved to 9 pm. 

On these days, it is likely NHPR’s midday programs such as The Takeaway at 2 p.m. and Fresh Air at 3 p.m. will be interrupted. You’ll still be able to find audio of those programs on NHPR’s smartphone app.
