US Presidential debate to be anchored by a black man
As we look forward to the much heated and coming US Presidential debate between the Republican and Democrat, we will not overlook one of the major point of this contest-tge anchor.
The African-American, Lester Holt, 57, will be moderating the debate. This is coming almost 25 years after it ever happened.
The last time a presidential debate had a black moderator was 1992, when then-ABC News anchor Carole Simpson moderated for Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush. Vice-president debates have had black moderators since, but this is the first major debate to have one in 24 years.
Although Lester, who is registered an a republican, will be moderating, he will have to take a middle-man role in this assignment.
We wish him success.
