The 59th Presidential Inauguration will be completely virtual for the first time in American history.

After months of election voting disputes and an extremely unconventional transition of power, the moment has finally come that half of the country has been waiting for.

On January 20, Joseph R. Biden will become the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris will become the first woman, the first African American and the first South Asian to be elected Vice President.

To say that it has been an emotional roller coaster would be an understatement, and those of us who believe our democracy did its job will celebrate Biden and Harris’ victory with enthusiasm.

Now that we have the formalities out of the way, Bayou Beat News wants to make sure you don’t miss any of the Inauguration Day coverage.

All of the historic moments will be available on the major cable TV news networks including CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, CNBC, BET and WGN America, as well as local ABC, CBS, PBS, Telemundo and Univision channels.

Special coverage will start as early as 6 a.m., but the Oath of Office is not expected until 12 p.m. EST. / 11 a.m. CST.
