R.N.C.: Day 3 Schedule, Speakers and How to Watch

Vice President Mike Pence will be the star of the third night of the Republican National Convention, which will also include speeches from several prominent members of Congress.

Here’s how to watch and who is expected to speak.

Convention proceedings will begin at 9 a.m. Eastern time, but the big speeches will happen from 8:30 to 11 p.m.

  • The Times will stream the convention on Wednesday and Thursday, accompanied by chat-based live analysis from our reporters and real-time highlights from the speeches.

  • The official livestream will be available on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch and Amazon Prime.

  • ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox News will cover the convention from 10 to 11 p.m. each night; CNN from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.; MSNBC from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.; PBS from 8 to 11 p.m.; and C-SPAN at 9 a.m. and then at 8:30 p.m.

The headliner on Wednesday will be Mr. Pence, who will formally accept his renomination as Mr. Trump’s running mate. His wife, Karen Pence, will also speak.

The other speakers announced by Mr. Trump’s campaign are:

  • Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, a firebrand conservative and one of Mr. Trump’s most vocal defenders. She is known especially for her opposition to abortion.

  • Jack Brewer, a former N.F.L. player who called Mr. Trump “the first Black president” this year, saying Mr. Trump had helped Black people more than former President Barack Obama had.

  • Sister Dede Byrne, a surgeon, retired Army colonel and member of the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary religious order.

  • Madison Cawthorn, the Republican nominee for the House in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District. At 25, he would be the youngest member of Congress if elected.

  • Kellyanne Conway, Mr. Trump’s counselor. She is stepping down at the end of the month.

  • Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas, one of a small number of Republican millennials holding a prominent national office.

  • Scott Dane, executive director of the Associated Contract Loggers and Truckers of Minnesota.

  • Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa. She is the only endangered Republican senator who is scheduled to speak at the convention.

  • Richard Grenell, the former acting director of national intelligence. He was the most overtly political person to hold that post.

  • Clarence Henderson, who participated in the 1960 lunch counter sit-ins in Greensboro, N.C.

  • Former Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, Mr. Pence’s national security adviser.

  • Michael McHale, president of the National Association of Police Organizations.

  • Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota. Her embrace of Mr. Trump during his visit to Mount Rushmore prompted inaccurate speculation that she might replace Mr. Pence.

  • Burgess Owens, the Republican nominee in Utah’s Fourth Congressional District, where Representative Ben McAdams, a Democrat, won an upset in 2018.

  • Representative Elise Stefanik of New York. She had a moderate, bipartisan reputation for her first few years in Congress but has become a more vocal defender of Mr. Trump.

  • Lara Trump, a campaign adviser to Mr. Trump and the wife of his son Eric.

  • Representative Lee Zeldin of New York, who made his reputation as a hard-liner on Israel and is facing a competitive race for re-election.
