In advance of the presidential debates, NBC and MSNBC will simulcast a Commander-in-Chief Forum, presented by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are scheduled to take questions back-to-back about national security and veterans issues from NBC journalists and members of an audience of veterans and current service members.
Some NBC affiliates in the Mountain and Pacific time zones will air the broadcast on tape-delay. If you’re in one of those time zones, check your local listing. The event will also air on NBC in its entirety at 8 p.m. PT and 9 p.m. MT. NBC will air the forum in Alaska at 7:00 p.m. (AKST) and in Hawaii at 7:00 p.m. (HST).

The one-hour forum will enable both candidates to discuss national security, veteran issues, military affairs and strategic policies. Clinton and Trump are trying to win votes as the window before Election Day quickly closes. The forum is the only joint appearance scheduled before the first states begin early voting. The event will be moderated by Matt Lauer at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, in New York City.
