Tonight, Monday, Sept. 26, more than one in four people in the U.S. are expected to watch the historic, first Hillary Clinton-Donald Trump presidential debate. That’s an estimated 80-100 million folks who will be tuning in – and according to one poll, half of them will make their decision on which candidate they want in the White House by the candidates’ responses tonight.
The debate will begin at 9:00 PM EDT, although all the major news networks began their “coverage” days ago. It’s expected to last about 90 minutes.
“NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt will moderate the debate at New York’s Hofstra University on Long Island.
The event will be available on these TV networks: ABC, CBS, CNN, C-SPAN, Fox, Fox News, MSNBC, NBC, and PBS.
WGN-TV anchors Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange have worked at the Chicago station together for 20 years, and have had lots of time to practice the most intricate commercial break handshake that’s ever existed.
This is the relationship that I want to have with my future co-worker.
It doesn’t matter that we don’t speak or read Japanese. Our favorite news source is Japan’s SBK News where the anchor is an adorable Shiba Inu named Shibao Inuyama. The smiley anchorpup doesn’t actually share a whole lot in the way of news, but he sure looks great in a suit. Most of his time at the news desk is spent napping, playing with a squeaky toy, and occasionally licking his news briefs. He’s the News Doge! Wow! Such news. Many Story. Much informed:
Truth be told, these short broadcasts may actually be playful advertisements for Seven Bank, Japan’s 7-Eleven banking service. But the thing is, they’re so awesomely cute that we still feel surprisingly well informed. Current events go right out the window where there’s an adorable dog sitting at the news desk. Or on the news desk. Or sleeping on the news desk.
