The city of Las Vegas is no stranger to “fight nights” but this time the most anticipated event in town is taking place a mile off the strip at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 9 p.m. ET, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will go head-to-head and share the ring, or that is, the stage for the last time in the third presidential debate, hosted by Fox News’ Chris Wallace.

This debate is the nation’s last opportunity to see both candidates discuss the issues before the election on Nov. 8. You can hear it, of course, on several SiriusXM channels; the full list is below.

Unlike the Town Hall style of the second debate at Washington University in St. Louis, the third match-up emulates the first debate with a single moderator asking questions and delegating answer-time to the candidates. There will be no in-person questions from undecided voters.

Unsurprisingly, the candidates have chosen drastically different approaches as they prepare for the debate. Clinton has taken herself off of the campaign trail to get ready. Trump, on the other hand, continues to hold large-scale rallies in swing states like Wisconsin and Colorado.

In the past week, both candidates have faced difficult news cycles. The Trump campaign has been playing defense after news outlets reported on new allegations of sexual misconduct. In addition, Clinton has faced increased scrutiny over her private email server as well as the content of her emails as Wikileaks has made thousands of these previously unreleased emails available to the public.

With both camps fielding new criticisms in the press while they polish their campaign talking points, this third debate is sure to be a Vegas-style political spectacle. SiriusXM will have a front row seat to all the action.

Throughout Wednesday night’s event, the SiriusXM Politics team will be on the ground talking with surrogates, political reporters and others offering behind-the-scenes coverage from Spin Alley. Stay on top of all the action with SiriusXM’s White House Correspondent Jared Rizzi on POTUS (Ch. 124), David Webb on Patriot (Ch. 125), Michelangelo Signorile on Progress (Ch. 127) and more.

For a lighter take on the night’s events, SiriusXM Insight (Ch. 121) takes a cue from Mystery Science Theater 3000 to create Political Science Theater 2016. As the debate airs, commentators John Fugelsang, Frank Conniff (of the original MSTK 3000), Dean Obeidallah and Micah Fox will interject with their thoughts and some political humor.

No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, SiriusXM has coverage that fits your needs.
