Where to Find Live TV, Online Coverage of Juarez Papal Mass + Pope Visit
If coverage of the pontiff's visit to our neighboring city of Juarez isn't of much interest to you, then you're going to want to avoid watching any of the local television channels today.
Conversely, for the many fans of Pope Francis who didn’t get a ticket to see him celebrate Mass in Juarez, or just didn't want to deal with the crowds and traffic, there will be plenty of options to witness just about every step the pope takes during his one day visit to the Borderland as every one of the news stations in town will dedicate the day to wall-to-wall coverage in their attempts to out-pope each other.
Here's what you can expect:
● KFOX14 and CBS4 are pledging "the most comprehensive coverage of the pope's visit to the Borderland." The two stations, which are owned by the same company and share resources, will televise "an uninterrupted live simulcast of the papal Mass from 4 to 6 p.m." They both plan to break from regular programming "as events warrant" throughout the day.
● On-air promos from NewsChannel9 (KTSM) promise "continuous coverage of the Pope arrival to Juarez," and "a special view from the levee" across from the specially built ramp Francis will climb to bless the U.S. side. The station will also be live at the Sun Bowl stadium Two Nations, One Faith event from 10am to 8 p.m.
● ABC7 (KVIA) will be dumping regular programming and replacing it with non-stop live coverage from both sides of the border.
All local news stations plan to live stream their coverage on their respective websites.
