FOX 9 has announced it will broadcast the entirety of the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

The local FOX affiliate announced Wednesday that it would air "gavel-to-gavel" coverage of trial proceedings. The station says it will be the only local channel to do so, and will also livestream the trial on its website.

The trial typically runs daily from around 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a break from 12:30 to 1:30. Preempted daytime programming including FOX 9 Buzz and The Jason Show will air on WFTC FOX 9+ on Channel 29.

Jury selection for the trial is currently underway. On Wednesday, two seated jurors were dismissed after they admitted recent news about the City of Minneapolis’ $27 million settlement with the family of George Floyd may interfere with their ability to be impartial.

The trial is scheduled to start on March 29, though Judge Peter Cahill is currently considering the defense’s motion to delay and relocate the trial after due to the impact of the settlement news.

Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
