Three individuals were named on Wednesday as the co-moderators of the second Republican Party presidential primary debate in late September.

The debate will air on Fox Business and Univision from 9-11 p.m. EST on September 27 and will be co-moderated by Stuart Varney, Dana Perino, and Ilia Calderón.

Varney was one of the original anchors at Fox Business when it started back in 2007 and currently hosts “Varney & Co.” Perino co-anchors “America’s Newsroom” and co-hosts “The Five,” both on Fox News. Calderón anchors Univision’s “Noticiero Univision.”

“We are very proud to have Stuart Varney and Dana Perino co-moderating the second debate with Univison to provide Americans with a comprehensive view of the qualifying candidates vying for the Republican nomination for president,” said Jay Wallace, President and Executive Editor of Fox News.

Maria Martinez-Guzman, Executive Vice President of News for Univision Networks, claimed that the left-wing Spanish news organization would be “fair and balanced” in its participation during the debate.

“As in past election cycles, we seek to inform Hispanic voters nationwide about their choices while representing our community’s issues during this election cycle,” she added.

The number of people who watched the Republican Party’s first presidential debate last week was roughly 13 million.

A survey from FiveThirtyEight/Washington Post/Ipsos asked Republican primary voters who did not watch the debate what they did instead.


Only 7% said that they watched Trump’s interview with Tucker Carlson, which fell behind several other options, including doing housework at 11%, and watching something else on TV at 29%. A report said that approximately 15 million people actually clicked and watched the 45-minute interview for at least 2 seconds.
