Re: 7-8 pm Live U.S. Senate Debate
Between Senator Marco Rubio and Congresswoman Val Demings

October 18th, 2022

The long-awaited debate in Florida’s race for the U.S. Senate will be broadcast live tonight, from 7-8 pm Eastern, from Palm Beach State College’s Lake Worth campus, featuring incumbent Senator Marco Rubio (R) against Congresswoman Val Demings (D).

The live program will be broadcast statewide through a consortium of major network affiliate broadcast partners with exclusivity in their markets. WPBF-25, the Hearst ABC station in West Palm Beach, is the producing station for the program. It will also be simulcast on Florida Public Radio, and will be broadcast an hour later, 7-8 p.m. Central time, in the Pensacola and Panama City TV markets. The program also may be available on newspaper websites or Facebook pages for member newspapers of the Florida Press Association, an anchoring and organizing partner in the debate series.

The entire recording of the debate is expected to be rebroadcast nationally on C-Span at 9 p.m., Eastern time.

Non-partner media outlets can record the debate on, but are embargoed from using any clips on any platforms until 9 p.m. ET
All debate clips must include a visual WPBF 25 courtesy.
