The first one-on-one debate between the leading gubernatorial candidates will take place Oct. 21, cohosted by WGBH and The Boston Globe, the two news outlets announced Tuesday.
Moderated by Jim Braude and Margery Eagan, who host a radio show on WGBH, the debate between Republican Charlie Baker and Democrat Martha Coakley will air on WGBH 2, 89.7 WGBH Boston Public Radio, WGBY-TV in Springfield, and WCAI-FM for the Cape and Islands and will be live-streamed on WGBHNews.org.
The debate calendar is still taking shape, but appears crowded in the weeks before the Nov. 4 election. The Western Massachusetts Media Consortium has planned a debate in Springfield on Sept. 29. That debate is open to all five candidates, including independents Jeffrey S. McCormick, Evan Falchuk, and Scott Lively.
WBZ-TV announced Tuesday that it will hold the first Boston television debate of the campaign Oct. 7 at its Brighton studios. That debate will also feature all five hopefuls.
Baker, Coakley, McCormick, and Falchuk will meet Wednesday at a forum hosted by the Providers’ Council at Faneuil Hall. The four will face off again Monday at a technology-
focused forum in Cambridge.
Other debates are still in the offing and will be announced soon, campaign sources said.
