After a much-talked about first round of the presidential debate, it’s time to prepare for the second round. Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton will face off in another war of words with Republican candidate, Donald Trump. Last time, the majority of the polls showed that Clinton took the first round, even if not by much. In this second round, people are wondering if she’ll go for a second consecutive win or will Trump turn the tables on her. It’s definitely something you don’t want to miss. If you’re searching for the TV scheduling for the second round of the presidential debate, your wait ends here. Read on to know about the schedule for the next round and some more details on the debate.

When and Where

The second round of the 2016 presidential debate will take place on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at Washington University in St Louis. The debate will air from 9:00 p.m. EST to 10:30 p.m. EST. All major broadcasting networks will air the debate live. You can tune into C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. You can also live stream the debate on YouTube and Twitter.

The Moderators

This debate will be moderated by Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper. Raddatz is Chief Global Affairs correspondent and an anchor for This Week on ABC. Anderson Copper is a CNN news anchor and is famous for his show Anderson Cooper 360. This time, the moderators hope to get the candidates to elaborate on some issues that they avoided in the first round, including the option of a nuclear strike on ISIS. However, they won’t get to pose much of their own questions because of the town-hall style debate this time around. The questions that will be posed to Clinton and Trump are contributed by American citizens. The moderators’ job this time is to make sure that every question is answered and to get the candidates to elaborate wherever necessary.

The Attendees

The audience in this debate will be uncommitted voters selected by Gallup Inc. Some will get the opportunity to pose a question directly to the candidates. Among the attendees is also going to be former UK Independence Party leader, Nigel Farage. The politician who favored Brexit earlier this year had given Trump informal tips on campaigning. UKip has denied that Farage coached Trump for the second round of debate, but his attendance is confirmed.


The Presidential Debate second round will be held on October 9. Submissions for the town-hall debate can be sent on
