The town hall will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The event will be co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum.

“We welcome Senator Sanders back to FOX News for a substantive conversation,” Jay Wallace, president and executive editor of Fox News Media, said in a statement.

Sanders last appeared in a Fox News town hall in April, not long after announcing his candidacy.

That event drew 2.6 million total viewers, the most of any town hall across all networks of the 2019-2020 campaign season to date.
