The moderators for the presidential and vice presidential debates were announced on Friday. Up first: NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, managing the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on September 26. CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz are up next, for a town hall debate between the candidates on October 9. Chris Wallace will be the first Fox News Channel personality to moderate a presidential debate on October 19. CBS’s Elaine Quijano was handed the task of moderating the VP debate between Mike Pence and Tim Kaine on October 4.

At least one person was less than pleased with the choice of moderators. Randy Falco, president and CEO of Univision, wrote to Janet Brown, executive director of The Commission on Presidential Debates, to “express disappointment, and frankly disbelief,” that a Hispanic journalist didn’t make the cut. Pointing out that no candidate for president has won without 30 percent of the Latino vote, and the number of Hispanic registered voters is trending upward in key battleground states, Falco says it is essential that the Hispanic community “hears firsthand where the candidates stand, what their policy solutions are and how they plan to implement their vision through the prism of a trusted journalist who represents Hispanic America and appreciates the nuances of this diverse demographic.” Read Falco’s letter in its entirety here.

Do you think it’s remiss not to include a Hispanic journalist as moderator in the presidential debates? Let us know what you think in the new Cynopsis poll.

AMC doesn’t want a second helping of Feed the Beast. “We have great respect and admiration for the entire team associated with Feed the Beast,” said AMC in a statement.“Unfortunately, the show simply didn’t achieve the results needed to move forward with a second season.” Beast debuted to 976,00 viewers and .3 among A18-49 in Live+3, falling to just over 400,000 and .1 in the demo.

Tribune Media and Dish Network reached a carriage agreement just in time for football season. The companies, at an impasse since June involving Tribune’s local stations and WGN America, said in a joint statement, “We want to thank our viewers and customers for their patience and support as we worked through this lengthy process.” The agreement, following a back-and-forth that became contentious, will last “for years to come.”

Nexstar’s $4.6 billion deal to acquire Media General was approved by the Justice Department, on the condition it sell seven television stations. “As originally structured, this transaction would have given Nexstar the power to impose higher prices on local and national advertisers and to demand higher retransmission fees from cable and satellite companies in six markets,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Renata Hesse of the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division. “Today’s settlement will protect advertisers, MVPDs and consumers – who ultimately would have borne many of these increased costs – by ensuring that Nexstar does not obtain undue bargaining leverage when negotiating broadcast television spot advertising prices and retransmission fees.”

Charter Communications struck a deal with KTLA5-Los Angeles to simulcast six of the final regular season LA Dodgers games. Included with Charter’s purchase of Time Warner Cable was TWC property SportsNet LA, which had rights to Dodgers games. The package includes Vin Scully Appreciation Day on September 23.

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien is back to host PBS’s American Graduate Day, a national initiative encouraging mentorship. “The most powerful part for me as a host, and as a journalist, has always been speaking with students – especially the ones who have faced adversity and weren’t always dealt a fair hand,” O’Brien, CEO of Starfish Media Group., tells Cynopsis. “Despite extraordinary challenges, they still have the determination, ambition and drive to succeed. They often tell me they couldn’t have done it without a mentor – a special person, friend, teacher, parent – someone they look up to.” While noting that graduation rates are rising, O’Brien also points out, “There are gaps in the system, we need to provide for our most vulnerable students – minority populations, special needs, inner city youth – who need additional role models who look like them and share similar backgrounds.” During the broadcast, O’Brien will be speaking with leaders, advocates and allies in the education space. Show streams live on Saturday, September 17 from WNET 2p-6p on public stations nationwide (check local listings); for more info, go here.
