NBC to Televise Democratic Presidential Primary Debate Spoonsored by League of Women Voters of the U.S.

Debate February 15

The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) has announced their sponsorship of a televised live debate among the leading Democratic candidates for President, on Sunday, February 15, 2004, in Los Angeles.

The program will broadcast on KNBC and be provided to NBC stations across the country, as well as MSNBC and Telemundo nationally. In addition, the debate will be made available to all other media, including broadcast and cable networks.

To be presented before a live audience at the Museum of Tolerance, the event will be moderated by KNBC News' Los Angeles anchor Paul Moyer, and will also feature a panel of respected journalists to pose questions of the candidates. Los Angeles cable station LA 36 will provide the media feed to NBC and other outlets live from 5 pm to 6 pm.

"Since February 15 is the eve of President's Day, it is especially appropriate that voters have the opportunity to hear from the Democratic presidential candidates vying for the world's most powerful position," said Kay J. Maxwell, President of the League of Women Voters of the United States.

All major Democratic candidates will be invited to participate, subject to their meeting criteria established by the LWVUS. This is the first Presidential primary debate the League of Women Voters of the United States has sponsored since 1992.
