Chief Political Anchor Bret Baier to Moderate
Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has agreed to join Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for FOX News Channel’s (FNC) Democratic Town Hall on Monday, March 7th at 6PM/ET, the night before the Michigan primary. Moderated by Chief Political Anchor Bret Baier, the one-hour Special Report event will be presented live at the Gem Theatre in Detroit with an audience comprised of Michigan voters.
This will mark Clinton’s first appearance on FNC in two years and Sanders’ first interview with Bret Baier. Clinton previously appeared on the network in 2014 during her book tour in a joint interview with Baier and Greta Van Susteren, while Sanders was recently on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace in February.
Baier notably co-moderated last night’s Republican debate in Detroit, alongside Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace, which garnered nearly 17 million viewers and was the second highest rated program in FNC’s history. He is the anchor of Special Report with Bret Baier (weeknights 6-7PM/ET), the number one rated cable news program in its timeslot and consistently one of the top four shows in cable news. He also co-moderated the GOP debate in January 2016 prior to the Iowa Caucus as well as the first Republican debate in August of 2015, which set a cable record for a non-sports event with 24 million viewers.
