NewsNation Will Host Next GOP Debate; Megyn Kelly To Co-Moderate | Eastern North Carolina Now

    NewsNation announced on Thursday morning that it will host the next Republican primary debate, scheduled for December 6 - and Sirius XM podcast host Megyn Kelly will be one of three moderators.

    In addition to Kelly - who has previously moderated five GOP primary debates - NewsNation host and Peabody Award winner Elizabeth Vargas ("Elizabeth Vargas Reports") and The Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Eliana Johnson will also moderate.

    According to the announcement, the debate is set to air exclusively on NewsNation and The CW Network beginning at 8 p.m. ET, and an encore presentation will air at 7 p.m. MT and 8 p.m. PT for those in the western time zones. It will also be livestreamed on NewsNation's website and Rumble.

    Nexstar's President of Networks, Sean Compton, addressed the news in a letter to NewsNation staffers that Mediaite published on Thursday.

    "From the very beginning, our mission, as stated in our first press release, has been 'news absent bias.' We are proud to report that, according to a variety of media watchdog groups, we've successfully maintained this brand mission since day one," the letter read in part. "This achievement reflects the dedication and commitment of each member of our team to deliver unbiased news to our audience and serve up opinionated talk that is professional and respectful of differing viewpoints."

    "Thanks to the exceptional work of our leaders, Michael Corn and Cherie Grzech, NewsNation has been chosen as the host for the fourth and final Republican primary debate of 2023. This is a testament to our network's growing importance and impact in the media landscape," it continued.

    According to a Reuters report published last week, the fourth debate requirements will set a higher entry bar for the candidates.

    All candidates must receive at least 6% support in two national polls - or 6% in one national poll and 6% in one statewide poll in one of the key early voting states: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, or Nevada. In addition, they must have at least 80,000 donors - and have 200 or more donors from each of 20 states or territories.
