ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Due to NBC's broadcast of Sunday Night Football, WSLS 10 will be airing Sunday's presidential debate on MeTV.

The second debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. In addition to MeTV, WSLS 10 will also be broadcasting the debate on WSLS.com and Facebook Live.

This debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which half of the questions will be posed directly by citizen participants and the other half will be posed by the moderator based on topics of broad public interest as reflected in social media and other sources.

The candidates will have two minutes to respond and there will be an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate further discussion.

The town meeting participants will be uncommitted voters selected by the Gallup Organization.
