WGBH News announced Monday that it will host the first 2020 Senate primary debate.

Incumbent Sen. Edward Markey and his two challengers — Rep. Joseph Kennedy III and attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan — will participate.

The hour-long debate — which will air on 89.7 FM and WGBH 2 on television, and will stream online — will take place on Feb. 18 at 7pm. The debate will air across the state with WGBY in Springfield, and WCAI, the Cape and Islands NPR station, will also carry it.

Boston Public Radio hosts Jim Braude and Margery Eagan will moderate in front of a studio audience.

“Voters throughout Massachusetts turn to public media for trusted news and information on the issues that matter,” said Kate Zachry, news director at WGBH News. “WGBH is uniquely positioned alongside our public media partners to present a debate that connects citizens across the Commonwealth, from the Cape and Islands to the Berkshires."
