CBS News will present a special town hall on the economy with Republican leaders hosted by CBS News’ “Face the Nation” anchor Bob Schieffer and “The Early Show” co-anchor Erica Hill.
The town hall, conducted before a live audience at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on June 13, is scheduled to air during the 7 to 8 a.m. hour of “The Early Show” on June 14, according to a news release.
Senators Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Jeff Sessions of Alabama, along with Representatives Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Allen West of Florida and Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina, will address economic issues with Rebecca Jarvis, CBS News Business and Economics Correspondent, facilitating questions from a nationwide online audience through a special partnership with YouTube.
Excerpts from the June 13 event will also be broadcast later that evening at 5:30 p.m. on the CBC Evening News with Scott Pelley.
The CBS News polling division will be helping CBS News journalists assemble and solicit questions from the audience at the Newseum; although anyone with access to YouTube will be able to ask questions and interact live during the event as well.
