Candy Crowley is kicking ass and taking names these days!

The CNN anchor of the Sunday morning talk show “State of the Union” was recently announced as the moderator of one of the upcoming presidential debates this fall. Crowley will be the first woman in two decades to hold the honor of hosting a presidential debate.

Though her employer had a lot to do with the GOP primary debates last fall, it’s actually the Commission on Presidential Debates that chose Crowley this time.

In addition to Crowley, some other media heavy-hitters were chosen for the other discussions. Here is the list of details for all four presidential and VP debates:

  • Wednesday, October 3: Hosted by Jim Lehrer of “PBS NewsHour” at the University of Denver. The focus will be on domestic issues.
  • Thursday, October 11: Hosted by Martha Raddatz of ABC News at Centre College in Danville, KY. The focus will be on domestic and foreign issues. This is the only vice-presidential debate.
  • Tuesday, October 16: Hosted by Candy Crowley of CNN’s “State of the Union” at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY. The focus will be on domestic and foreign issues in a town hall-style format.
  • Monday, October 22: Hosted by Bob Schieffer of CBS’s “Face the Nation” at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. The focus will be on foreign issues.

So mark your calendars because we will be live-tweeting all four of the debates. Follow us now on Twitter to keep up with the latest!
