Wallace will moderate the first debate, scheduled for Sept. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Moderators have been selected for the upcoming debates between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden as well as Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris.

The first presidential debate, set for Sept. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio, will be moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. Wallace previously moderated the final debate of the 2016 election cycle. The format will be divided into 15-minute segments on topics to be chosen by the moderator.

The vice presidential debate, scheduled for Oct. 7 in Salt Lake City, Utah, will be moderated by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page. This debate will be divided into 10 minute segments, chosen by the moderator.

The second presidential debate, set for Oct. 15 in Miami, Florida, will be moderated by C-SPAN host and political editor Steve Scully. This debate will be the town hall debate, with questions to be asked by South Florida residents selected by Dr. Frank Newport of Gallup.

The final debate, scheduled for Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tennessee, will be moderated by NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker, and will have the same format as the first debate.

“We are grateful to these experienced journalists, who will help ensure that the general election presidential debates continue to serve their unique educational purpose of helping the public learn about the candidates," said Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., Dorothy S. Ridings and Kenneth Wollack, co-chairs of the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, in a statement. "Each individual brings great professionalism to moderating and understands that the purpose of the 2020 debate formats is to facilitate in-depth discussion of major topics.”

In a memo to staff Wednesday obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott called the selection of Wallace to moderate the first debate "among the greatest moments in our near-24 year history."
