CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett will moderate, along with New York Times national editor Marc Lacey.
CNN announced on Friday that it would co-host the event. It co-hosted the second Democratic debate back on July 30-31.
Although the Democratic National Committee made qualification more difficult, it’s looking like the next debate will warrant CNN scheduling two nights. Ten candidates qualified for the debate on Thursday, which was co-hosted by ABC and Univision, and they also will make the next debate. But philanthropist Tom Steyer and perhaps more candidates are likely to meet the threshold by an October 1 cutoff.
The DNC has said that if more than 10 candidates qualify, the debate will take place as two events over two nights.
The ratings for Thursday night’s debate show that sponsorship remains lucrative. Nielsen ratings showed a big bounce for ABC and Univision, with the three-hour primetime event drawing 14 million viewers across the two networks.
The October 15 debate will air on CNN, CNN International and CNN en Espanol. It also will stream on CNN.com and on the New York Times‘ homepage.
