HPPR will provide live broadcast coverage of the final presidential debate across the High Plains region, along with live transcript and fact-checking here at, starting Wednesday at 8 pm Central Time.  The debate will run 90 minutes without a break and will be carried by HPPR without interruption.

This debate will follow the same format as the first presidential debate. It will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by Fox’s Chris Wallace, the moderator. Wallace will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.

After the debate, NPR’s All Things Considered host Robert Siegel and NPR reporters will provide analysis and fact-checking until the conclusion of the coverage at 10 pm CT.
