OMAHA, Neb. – Anyone who wants to watch Warren Buffett dispense advice at Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting without making the pilgrimage to Omaha this spring can follow it online.
Berkshire said Tuesday that Yahoo Finance would broadcast the meeting this spring. This year’s meeting on April 30 will be the first one streamed online.
Buffett says he decided to broadcast the meeting online because interest in the event has grown so much.
Last year, more than 40,000 people from around the globe filled an Omaha arena and several overflow rooms for the meeting.
The heart of the meeting is when Buffett and his Vice Chairman Charlie Munger spend several hours answering questions from shareholders and a panel of reporters and analysts.
The meeting broadcast will start at 9 a.m. Central on April 30.
