UPDATED Tiger Woods came out of hiding about six weeks ago to deliver his first public press conference after a November car accident led to the whirlwind revelation that the golf pro had had multiple affairs over the past few years. Now Woods once again finds himself in the spotlight, this time in preparation for his return to golf with this week’s Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club. But unlike last time, in which he read a prepared statement, today Woods will be taking questions from reporters about his game and about his personal life.
Today at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT, Woods will address his critics head on, and multiple news outlets will be covering the event. CNBC, CNN, ESPNews, Fox News, Fox Business News, The Golf Channel and MSNBC all plan to broadcast the press conference live. If you’re not in front of a TV, however, there will be a few ways to catch the press conference online.
The Associated Press will stream the press conference through its AP Live multimedia platform. AP Live, which is powered by Livestream, plans to deliver live analysis of the planned press conference, as well as daily webcasts from the Masters Tournament. The platform, which also includes Facebook integration, can be found at www.livestream.com/aplive or Facebook.com/aplive, and will also be available for syndication to AP member news sites and other distribution channels.
In addition to AP Live, CNN will also have a live feed of the press conference online at CNN.com beginning at 1:55 p.m. EDT.
Update: CBS News, which uses Ustream for its live video, will also be streaming the press conference beginning at 2 p.m. The CBS News feed can be found at www.ustream.tv/cbsnews.
We will be updating this thread as we learn of more streams of the press conference going online.
