In partnership with the League of Women Voters of the Calumet Area, Porter County, and LaPorte County, Lakeshore Public Media will host the U.S. House, 1st District, debate on Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Frank Mrvan (D), Mark Leyva (R), and Edward Strauss (L) will debate at 6 p.m. Tuesday on Lakeshore PBS and Lakeshore Public Radio 89.1 FM. Lakeshore Public Radio’s Tom Maloney will moderate the debate among the three candidates seeking to succeed Rep. Pete Visclosky (D), who announced last year that he would be retiring after 36 years in the 1st District seat.

“Lakeshore Public Media strives to provide programming that educates, engages, and informs our audience, especially those in Northwest Indiana, where we were created to serve,” said Lakeshore Public Media President and CEO James Muhammad. “Working with the League of Women Voters, this debate is a way for our community to hear from the candidates in an impartial manner as they outline their positions about policy, issues, and the direction of our country.”

“Congressman Visclosky helped shape Northwest Indiana into what it is today,” Maloney added. “All three candidates would have some very large shoes to fill. It’s incredibly important for voters to be informed before heading to the poll. I’m thrilled that with our partners at the League of Women Voters, we can continue to educate the public on what each candidate brings to the table as they look to represent Northwest Indiana.”

Lakeshore PBS broadcasts its main channel over the air on 56, on Comcast on 17 or 21 (HD Channel 239), on Dish Network HD Channel 6320, AT&T U-verse HD Channel 1056, DirecTV on 56, and online at Lakeshore Public Radio can be heard on 89.1 FM and
