Bernie Sanders will sit down with Bret Baier on March 7, while Secretary Clinton has a scheduling conflict.

Fox News Channel is staying put in Detroit. Just a few days after airing Thursday's GOP debate, the network will host Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for a Town Hall in the Michigan city.

The Town Hall will not include Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. The former Secretary of State was invited, but a FNC release noted that a conflict in her campaign schedule leaves her unable to attend. This marks FNC's first Democratic Town Hall this election cycle, with CNN and MSNBC previously airing such events.

FNC's Bret Baier announced the news during his Thursday episode of Special Report and will host the March 7 forum at 6 p.m. ET at Detroit's Gem Theatre. It comes just one day ahead of the Michigan primary.

Baier and FNC colleagues Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace are in Detroit to moderate Thursday's debate, the network's third this campaign and only its second with Donald Trump. The GOP frontrunner infamously butted heads with Kelly during the ratings record-breaking debate in August.
