Joe Paterno's Funeral Procession, Thursday Ceremony To Be Televised, Streamed

Public viewings in remembrance of former Penn St. Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno resumed Wednesday morning after lasting into Tuesday night, and will continue until his private 2 p.m. ET funeral. Thousands have already paid their respects, and another thousand are expected Wednesday.

EDIT: Paterno's Wednesday funeral itself will not be televised, but the 3 p.m. ET procession will be streamed online by WJAC-TV.

Penn State president Rodney Erickson is expected to be among the many mourners in attendance. The school that fired Paterno for his role in the Jerry Sandusky debacle will honor him in a separate ceremony at the campus basketball arena on Thursday.

Those who aren't able to make it to the Thursday ceremony can watch it on the Big Ten Network or online at BTN2Go.com. Some of Penn State's other campuses are also scheduled to stream live video of the events in viewing rooms.
