— The funeral service for Elizabeth Edwards will air live tomorrow on WRAL-TV and WRAL.com.

Streaming video coverage will begin at 12:30 p.m. with "Remembering Elizabeth Edwards," a news special about Edwards' life and legacy. The funeral service, at Edenton Street United Methodist Church, 228 W. Edenton in Raleigh, will follow at 1 p.m.

The Duke basketball game scheduled to air at noon on WRAL-TV (CBS) will move to FOX 50. Regular CBS programming will resume after the funeral service.

Edwards, 61, the estranged wife of two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, died Tuesday at her Chapel Hill home after a 6-year battle with breast cancer.

Following the funeral, Edwards will be buried next to her oldest son, Wade, who was killed 14 years ago in a car accident, in a private ceremony at Oakwood Cemetery.
