The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding hearings on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Barrett would fill the seat left vacant with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

The hearings are scheduled to start each day at 9.  Watch the hearings live below.  Blue Ridge Public Radio will air NPR's live special coverage of the hearings starting at 9 each morning on both of its channels.  If the hearings continue past 4 p.m. each afternoon, then the live special coverage will continue on BPR News until its conclusion.  BPR Classic will return to regular programming at 4 starting with All Things Considered.
