Today the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced the hosts of the next four presidential debates. Surprisingly, Apple News is a co-host (via Axios).
Twitter is also listed as a co-host. For the past couple years Apple News has prominently featured political news when these debates happen or elections, but actually co-hosting is a new step.
The schedule for the debates is:
- Jan. 14: CNN will co-host the 7th Democratic debate with the Des Moines Register at Drake University.
- Feb. 7: ABC will co-host the 8th Democratic debate in partnership with WMUR-TV (the local ABC affiliate serving New Hampshire) and Apple News at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.
- Feb. 19: NBC News will co-host the 9th Democratic debate in Las Vegas with the Nevada Independent, a nonpartisan, nonprofit news and opinion website founded in 2017.
- Feb. 25: CBS News will co-host the 10th Democratic debate with the Congressional Black Caucus Institute and in partnership with Twitter in Charleston, South Carolina at Gaillard Center.

One thought on “Apple News to Co-Host Democratic Debates for First Time”
Good to see Apple throwing in with ABC and especially the DNC, despite its massive electoral fraud in 2016 and the resignation of the top level of the party. Don’t suppose that got much coverage on ABC.
