ABC will host a town hall with Joe Biden, former vice president and the Democratic presidential nominee, Oct. 15. George Stephanopoulos, chief anchor at ABC News, will moderate. The event happens in Philadelphia during primetime. 

President Trump and Biden were scheduled to debate Oct. 15 in Miami, but Trump’s COVID-19 issues appear to have cancelled the event. The Commission on Presidential Debates proposed a remote debate that night, but Trump dismissed the idea as “ridiculous.”

ABC News senior executive producer Marc Burstein is the executive producer of the town hall.
