YouTube, NBC News Partner to Present Democratic Debate

Further solidifying the social and digital potential of live events, NBC News announced Wednesday that it has partnered with YouTube to host the online telecast of its upcoming Democratic presidential debate.

Hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute and moderated by “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt, the debate will take place on Jan. 17 in Charleston, S.C. and will air on NBC and on NBC NewsYouTube channel starting at 9 p.m. E.T. that day. It will also feature Google Trends search data and questions from the YouTube community.

The event is the final Democratic presidential debate before the first caucus and primary votes are cast.

The previous debate between Democratic candidates for president, which is pictured above, occurred in November and featured a partnership between host CBS News and Twitter. It drew 8.55 million viewers, a solid number considering it aired on a Saturday. The next Democratic debate is this Saturday. It will be hosted by ABC News and moderated by “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir and ABC News chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz.

On Tuesday, CNN hosted the last Republican presidential debate of the year. It brought in 18 million viewers. The next GOP debate will be hosted by Fox Business Network on Jan. 14.
