New Hampshire Public Radio, in collaboration with New Hampshire PBS, is holding a series of forums with presidential primary candidates to explore the issues that impact voters. Forums are open to the public, broadcast on NHPR live, and then broadcast on New Hampshire PBS.
The next forum on Nov. 7 will feature entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a founder of the nonprofit Venture for America, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination. Prior forums included Republican candidate Bill Weld on October 8, Democratic candidate Tom Steyer on October 28, and Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren on October 30.
Primary 2020: The Exchange Candidate Forums from NHPR will be broadcast live from NHPR’s Studio D in Concord. Laura Knoy, host of The Exchange, will be joined by NHPR’s senior political reporter and editor Josh Rogers as co-moderator of the forum with Mr. Yang.
For this forum and for future forums, conversations with the candidates will touch on the economy, healthcare, education, climate change, public safety and foreign policy. Listeners are encouraged to submit their questions for the candidates in advance; public questions will help guide the interview and may be read by an NHPR host on-air. Submit questions in advance online here.
