This Thursday ESPN will carry live coverage of OJ Simpson's parole hearing from Carson City, Nevada.

USA Today reports that more than 240 media credentials have been approved, and a dozen satellite trucks are expected to be at the site.

Steve Gregory will be out there getting coverage for KFI, and Jane Wells will be out there too covering the circus for CNBC.

Yale Galanter, OJ's attorney during his 2008 trial, believes it's going to work out in his favor:

"He’s going to get parole. Parole in the state of Nevada is really based on how you behave in prison, and by all accounts he’s been a model prisoner. There are no absolutes anytime you’re dealing with administrative boards, but this is as close to a non-personal decision as you can get.’’

At the end of the 2008 trial, OJ was found guilty of 12 counts including robbery and kidnapping. He got a minimum sentence of 9 years and a maximum of 33 years.

The 70-year-old OJ will participate via video conference from the Lovelock Correctional Center, about 100 miles away from Carson City.
