The two major-party candidates for Maryland governor, Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan, have agreed to a second televised debate, co-hosted by three Washington area media outlets, including The Washington Post.
Brown, the state’s lieutenant governor, and Hogan, an Anne Arundel County businessman, are scheduled to debate live on Oct. 13 on NewsChannel 8. The hourlong debate is being co-hosted by WTOP Radio and The Post.
The debate is set to take place one week after a scheduled encounter in the Baltimore media market, on CBS affiliate WJZ-TV. The Brown and Hogan campaigns agreed to that debate earlier this month.
Aides to the candidates said they are continuing to discuss other possible debates in advance of the November general election.
The Washington area debate will be hosted by Bruce DePuyt, host of “NewsTalk” on NewsChannel 8, the station announced. WTOP’s Shawn Anderson and Washington Post reporter Jenna Johnson will join DePuyt in the questioning.
The debate will be broadcast live at 10 a.m. on NewsChannel 8, and it will be streamed live at news8.net, wjla.com, wtop.com and washingtonpost.com.
