Lance Armstrong To Admit To Using Performance-Enhancing Drugs

As we've reported all week, the first part of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong's confessional with talk show host Oprah Winfrey airs Thursday night.

The big news from the interview, of course, is how Armstrong -- who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles -- admits to using performance-enhancing drugs.

The interview is being broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network and also being live streamed on the network's website. The 90-minute interview starts at 9 p.m. EST. A second part airs Friday at 9 p.m. EST.

We'll be following along, so make sure you hit refresh so you're seeing the latest updates.
