Wednesday night’s presidential debate might have taken place in Denver, but the University of Missouri–St. Louis at Grand Center took center stage for NPR listeners. The new home of St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU was the setting for a live broadcast of “Talk of the Nation.”

Host Neal Conan and his guests previewed the debate, discussed national and regional news of the day and provided post-debate analysis. A live studio audience watched and participated in the national broadcast of the program.
