Yahoo Finance’s exclusive livestream of the meeting will be the only destination for investors, business professionals, journalists and consumers alike to tune in from the comforts of their homes. Viewers can watch Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett share his candid outlook on the economy, the administration, today’s markets, the company, and more.
“During these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to provide our audiences with trusted information on a trusted network,” said Guru Gowrappan, CEO of Verizon Media. “Leaders like Warren Buffett provide a unique perspective for the global community during this time. Yahoo Finance’s return as the exclusive livestream partner on this influential day is indicative of our position as a leading business platform. We are thrilled and committed to delivering Berkshire Hathaway’s Shareholder Meeting to people around the world.”
“2020 marks our fifth year partnering with Yahoo Finance as the exclusive livestream host of the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting,” said Marc Hamburg, Chief Financial Officer & Senior Vice President, Berkshire Hathaway. “This year’s live stream is more important than ever, as our shareholders can tune in to join us in Omaha from the safety of their homes.”
Berkshire Hathaway’s Annual Shareholders Meeting is a defining event for the business community as thousands of people from around the world make the pilgrimage to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the “Woodstock for Capitalists.” However, due to the worldwide impact of COVID-19 all special events, public gatherings, as well as shareholder and guest attendance for the meeting have been cancelled to continue to follow recommended guidelines.
