Fox News Channel has solidified its coverage plans for the Vice Presidential Debate on Thursday. As with the first Presidential debate, Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier will co-anchor the special from 8:55-10:30, dubbed “America’s Election Headquarters: Vice Presidential Debate.”
“Fox News Sunday” moderator Chris Wallace, Brit Hume, Joe Trippi, Steve Hayes and Charles Krauthammer will provide analysis, with Carl Cameron, Steve Brown and Ed Henry reporting. Online, coverage will be anchored by Rick Folbaum and Harris Faulkner. Every program from 3PM onward (save for “O’Reilly Factor” at 8 PM) will originate from Kentucky on Thursday.
FNC has a partnership with Twitter for the debates, and will utilize Twitter’s data to bring viewers to gain insight into viewer sentiment, and to present the topics people are talking about on the service.
CNN announced its coverage plans for all of the debates late last month.
