According to the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, the moderators will be Chris Wallace of Fox News for the debate September 29 in Cleveland; Steve Scully of C-SPAN for the "town meeting" debate October 15 in Miami; and NBC's Kristen Welker for the debate October 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.

President Trump and Joseph R. Biden Jr. will debate with a single moderator at each of their three matchups, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced on Wednesday. He is returning to the chair after moderating Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016, which was the first time a Fox News anchor had been selected to oversee a debate in the general election.

Fox News' Chris Wallace, C-SPAN's Steve Scully, and NBC News' Kristen Welker will be moderators for the first, second, and third presidential debates, respectively, and USA Today's Susan Page will moderate the vice presidential debate.

There will be three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate ahead of the November election, the Commission on Public Debates announced Wednesday.

The second debate will be held in Miami, Florida on 15 October, moderated by Mr Scully, and the final debate will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on 22 October to be moderated by Ms Welker.

Fox News's Chris Wallace will serve as the moderator for the first presidential debate at the Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Kamala Harris will take place October 7.

This debate will serve as the town hall presidential debate.

"Each individual brings great professionalism to moderating and understands that the objective of the 2020 debate formats is to facilitate in-depth discussion of major topics", the chairs said in a statement.

The last debate before the November 3 election will have the same format as the first presidential debate. Candidates will have two minutes to respond to each question and then a chance to respond to each other.

"Uncommitted voters" will be selected under the supervision of Dr. Frank Newport, Senior Scientist with the Gallup polling organization.
