The town hall will take place on September 17 at 8 p.m. ET in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and will be moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper. It will be Biden’s first prime time town hall since accepting the nomination. The event, which will feature a socially-distanced live audience, will follow Pennsylvania’s guidance and regulations regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
The town hall will air on CNN, CNN en Español, CNN International and CNN Airport Network and will stream on CNN.com, CNN OTT apps for AppleTV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Samsung SmartTV and Android TV, and CNN Mobile apps for iOS and Android, CNN’s SiriusXM Channels and the Westwood One Radio Network.
It will come less than seven weeks ahead of Election Day and as Biden and President Donald Trump enter the home stretch to November 3.
Biden spent Labor Day in Pennsylvania and has been returning to the campaign trail after the coronavirus pandemic halted all in-person campaigning for an extended period of time.
