Warren Buffett and Yahoo are teaming up.

The billionaire’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting will be live streamed by Yahoo (YHOO) Finance on Saturday, April 30 at 10 a.m. EST, according to a company press release. This will be the first time ever that the meeting is available to the public via video streaming.

“Over the past 50 years, we’ve seen a tremendous increase in the interest around our shareholders meeting,” said Buffett, the company’s CEO, in a statement. “Partnering with Yahoo Finance provides us with the opportunity to reach more people than ever, in key financial centers around the world, from New York to China and beyond.”

“Viewers will get to hear first-hand from Mr. Buffett, and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger, as they offer up insights in a no-holds-barred Q&A session with the on-site audience,” according to the release, “and provide business updates on Berkshire and its subsidiaries.”

Buffett added, “Yahoo Finance is a great platform to bring the energy and excitement of what happens in Omaha to an informed audience around the world.”

Replays of the event will be available for 30 days after the meeting concludes, according to the release.

The news of the live stream comes as Buffett has started buying oil stock again, as Fortune reported. Meanwhile, Yahoo recently made a round of job cuts with more expected in the coming months.
