Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace will moderate the Oct. 19 presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at the University of Nevada, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Friday.

NBC News’ Lester Holt, ABC's Martha Raddatz and CNN's Anderson Cooper were also named as moderaters for the other presidential debates.

The CPD also said Friday that CBS News' Elaine Quijano will moderate the vice presidential debate between Republican Mike Pence and Democrat Tim Kaine on Oct 4.

The full debate schedule is as follows:

First presidential debate: 
Lester Holt, Anchor, NBC Nightly News
Monday, September 26, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

Vice presidential debate: 
Elaine Quijano, Anchor, CBSN and Correspondent, CBS News
Tuesday, October 4, Longwood University, Farmville, VA

Second presidential debate (town meeting): 
Martha Raddatz, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent and Co-Anchor of "This Week," ABC 
Anderson Cooper, Anchor, CNN
Sunday, October 9, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO

Third presidential debate: 
Chris Wallace, Anchor, Fox News Sunday
Wednesday, October 19, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV

The first and third debates will be question and answer sessions on six topics chosen by moderators and revealed a week in advance. The second, town meeting debate will feature a town hall-style meeting with half the questions posed by audience members. Each of the debates will be scheduled for 9 p.m. ET, each lasting 90 minutes.

All of the presidential debate moderators will be general election rookies, although Raddatz did the 2012 vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. It will be the first time that the general election campaign's much-anticipated first debate won't be moderated by the now-retired Jim Lehrer of PBS since 1984.
