Note to reporters back to top

So CCM can plan appropriately, we request that news media representatives who  want to cover the debate: (1) contact CCM before Friday, October 26 so we can reserve a good location for you in the debate room; and (2) be sure you arrive in the debate room that evening by 6:30 p.m. (we need to secure and close the room by 6:45 p.m. for the live broadcast).  

And please be aware that WTNH/Nexstar Broadcasting, the Hartford Courant and CCM have the sole rights to broadcast, rebroadcast, telecast, webcast, or podcast the live debate. Other media will be asked to refrain from broadcasting the event live or filming it to broadcast at a later time. Still photography during the debate and live shots prior to or following the debate will be permitted.
