The Oregon Association of Broadcasters is holding its annual conference in Sunriver in late September, so they will be hosting the debate between Governor Kitzhaber and Republican challenger Dennis Richardson -- Friday September 26th at 11 A.M.
OAB President Bill Johnstone says they're excited to play a role.
"We have tried on numerous occasions to be able to sponsor a debate. What happened this year they specifially said it was going to be in central Oregon and we're going to be there for our annual conference in Sunriver. So we finally got one of the debates. We thought we had an opportunity to get a yes on one of these debates and we did get it on this particular one."
Johnstone says they are proposing to have one moderator and allow OAB members to ask questions of the candidates, but the candidates haven't agreed to a format yet.
