Megyn Kelly, host of The Megyn Kelly Show on SiriusXM’s Triumph channel, will moderate the debate alongside NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas and the Washington Free Beacon’s Eliana Johnson.

“It will be the margarita of debates — spicy, fun and somewhat intoxicating,” Kelly said. “Looking forward to it.”

Megyn Kelly previously moderated five GOP primary debates, including the most-watched Presidential primary debate in history: the first GOP primary debate in the 2016 election cycle, watched by 24 million viewers.

How to Listen to the Debate

Tune in to Triumph (Ch. 111) on radios and the SiriusXM app on December 6 from 8-10 pm ET to hear a live audio broadcast of the NewsNation Republican Primary Debate and a live post-debate analysis show hosted by Megyn Kelly.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are expected to take the stage tonight. This would mark the smallest debate stage yet.

To qualify, the candidates needed to reach at least 6 percent in two national polls or in one national poll and two of the four early-voting states – Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. Additionally, each candidate had to garner at least 80,000 unique donors, including at least 200 from 20 or more states and territories.
