Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos to Moderate

ABC News, the National Constitution Center and WPVI-TV will host a Democratic Presidential Candidate debate in Philadelphia on Wednesday, April 16. The live debate, which is scheduled to run 90 minutes, will be moderated by ABC News anchors Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos and will air from 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

The debate between Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The format of the debate and information about media credentialing will be announced at a later date.

"Coming just days before the critical Pennsylvania primary, the debate will give voters across the state and throughout the country an opportunity to hear the candidates talk in depth about the important issues facing the nation," said ABC News President David Westin.

"The National Constitution Center is pleased and proud to host the Democratic Presidential Candidates debate in Historic Philadelphia. Just a few feet from Independence Hall -- the very place our nation was formed � 'We the People' will be reminded of the importance of active citizenship and the power of every vote," said National Constitution Center President and CEO Joseph M. Torsella.

"Serving our viewers is always critically important at 6abc, but that is never more true than during an election," said WPVI President and General Manager Bernie Prazenica. "We are extremely pleased to be able to help bring this debate to our community at this vital juncture and to give the people of the Delaware and Lehigh Valley's a chance to hear from the candidates before they make their voices heard on April 22."
