When and Where Can Chicago Bears Fans Watch the First Round?

The first round of the NFL Draft kicks off Thursday at 7 p.m. CST. For the first time, the draft has made its way to the city of Detroit, and while many Bears fans will be in attendance, you do not have to make the trek up north to see every first-round selection.

The 2024 NFL Draft will be streaming on ESPN, ABC, and the NFL Network starting Thursday night.

ESPN's day one coverage will feature host Mike Greenberg, analysts Booger McFarland, Louis Riddick, Adam Schefter, Mel Kiper, reporter Laura Rutledge, and several team reporters, including Courtney Cronin, who will cover the Bears.

ABC's coverage for the first round will have a slightly more collegiate feel, as host Reece Davis will be joined by analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Nick Saban, Pete Thamel, and Field Yates, as well as reporter Laura Rutledge. ABC will also utilize ESPN team reporters, like Cronin, to expand their coverage.

The NFL Network's draft program, hosted by Rich Eisen, will feature Charles Davis, Joel Klatt, Kurt Warner, and Daniel Jeremiah. Reporter Stacey Dales is set to cover the Bears.
