On a Sunday.

NBC-peacockNBC announced Nightly News anchor Lester Holt as its moderator for the Democratic primary debate taking place Jan. 17 at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, S.C., hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute. It will be the fourth DNC-sanctioned debate, following this Saturday’s upcoming debate moderated by ABC’s David Muir and Martha Raddatz.

The Jan. 17 debate will take place between 9 and 11 p.m. ET. It will be broadcast on NBC, with a livestream available on NBC News’ digital sites, as well as on its YouTube channel. YouTube is NBC’s digital partner for the debate.

Holt’s moderating duties will be rounded out by as-yet-to-be announced NBC reporters, and augmented by questions culled from YouTube users.
