CNN’s Zahn Going to Town8/11/2004 8:11 AM Eastern
Cable News Network anchor Paula Zahn will moderate a live town meeting Wednesday, Aug. 18, in Canton, Ohio, the network said Wednesday.
The one-hour program will air live from 8 p.m.-9 pm (EST) during Paula Zahn Now, CNN added.
The network called the town meeting “an effort to directly examine and discuss key concerns of America's undecided voters.”
Issues to be discussed include the economy, jobs, education, terrorism and the war in Iraq. Representatives from both President George W. Bush's and Sen. John Kerry's (D-Mass.) campaigns are expected to join Zahn in fielding questions from the audience.
“With the large undecided vote in Ohio, Canton is a great place to tap into what really matters to voters," Zahn said in a prepared statement. "Members of our audience will be actively involved in the program and will be encouraged to ask questions of both campaigns."
