Summary List Placement
Four moderaters are set for the 2020 presidential debates.
The Commission on Presidential Debates released the picks on Wednesday:
- Chris Wallace of Fox News
- Susan Page of USA Today
- Steve Scully of C-SPAN
- Kristen Welker of NBC News
All but Wallace are first-timers, with the Fox News Sunday host returning after helming the final debate in 2016 between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Page will moderate the vice presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris on Oct. 7.
Scully will be in the chair for the second presidential debate on Oct. 15. In 2016, he was the backup moderator for each night.
Four years ago I had the honor of serving as the back-up moderator for the @debates 3 presidential and 1 VP. This year it is a privilege to moderate the 2nd debate at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. @realDonaldTrump @JoeBiden OCT 15 @cspan pic.twitter.com/lsQ1xxdEOk
