LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The more things change, the more they stay the same.

>> Weekend Forecast

COVID-19 has delayed the Kentucky Derby by four months, and is the reason why the stands will be empty at Churchill Downs this weekend.

But you’ll still be able to enjoy all the action on WAVE 3 News, your official Derby station.

Below is our programming schedule for Friday and Saturday:

Friday, Sept. 4 -- Oaks Day

+ 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. -- WAVE 3 News Sunrise will include live reports from Churchill Downs.

+ 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. -- Join the WAVE 3 News team for live coverage all day from the track as well as from the studio. And here’s our annual reminder: NBC Sports Network will not permit us to show several of the races live, including the Oaks race itself. In those cases, we will show those races in their entirety 20 minutes after they’ve been completed.
