Court TV will be airing the trial of Wisconsin v. Kyle Rittenhouse in its entirety in the months ahead.
The trial is scheduled to begin on November 1. You can watch on over-the-air channel 4.3, on cable, live-streamed on CourtTV.com, YouTube TV, Pluto TV, SiriusXM, as well as the Court TV app for Roku®, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android and Apple devices.
As with the Derek Chauvin murder trial this spring, Court TV will work with court officials to install its cameras in the courtrooms. In addition, Court TV will cover the proceedings live and in their entirety with its team of experienced legal experts, including Vinnie Politan, Julie Grant, Ted Rowlands, and Michael Ayala, with on location reporting from legal correspondents Julia Jenaé and Chanley Painter.
Court TV also plans to cover the case of Georgia v. Gregory McMichael, Travis McMichael, William Bryan, in which three white men are accused of murder in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man who was shot while jogging through a south-Georgia neighborhood.
“It has never been more important for the court system to have full transparency with the American public. These unfolding stories are documenting important pieces of our country’s history, and the impact will be felt for generations,” said Scott Tufts, head of Court TV. “Building on our success working with Hennepin County in Minnesota for the Chauvin trial, we are honored to collaborate with officials in Georgia and Wisconsin to provide our experience in broadcasting these important cases. We value this partnership with the court while providing our viewers with unobstructed and unbiased views of the proceedings.”
Court TV also announced today that Ashley Willcott, a former judge, lawyer, mediator, and consultant, has been tapped as the network’s fifth anchor and will host the network’s live coverage weekdays 3 to 6 p.m. ET starting this week.
