MSNBC TO HOST BACK-TO-BACK PRIMETIME SPECIALS WITH TRUMP AND KASICH ON WEDNESDAY FROM SOUTH CAROLINA

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Moderate Hour-Long Town Hall with Donald Trump Airing at 8 p.m. ET Chris Matthews Goes One-on-One with John Kasich in Extended Interview Airing at 7:00 p.m. ET

Feb. 16, 2016 – MSNBC, “The Place for Politics,” will host in-depth primetime interviews with two leading Republican presidential candidates in South Carolina on Wednesday, February 17, just three days before Saturday’s “First in the South” primary.

“Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will moderate an hour-long town hall with Donald Trump airing at 8:00 p.m. ET. The event will take place in Charleston and feature questions from South Carolina voters.

Immediately before the Trump town hall, “Hardball” host Chris Matthews sits down with Ohio Governor John Kasich in Hilton Head, SC for an extended one-on-one interview airing at 7:00pm ET.

MSNBC is inviting all Republican presidential candidates to participate in similar long-form interviews this primary season.

On Thursday night, from 9-11 p.m. ET, Jose Diaz-Balart and Chuck Todd will moderate a Clinton – Sanders Town Hall in Las Vegas ahead of Saturday’s Nevada Democratic caucuses.

In November, Rachel Maddow moderated a Democratic Candidates Forum in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Earlier this month, Maddow and Todd moderated the first one-on-one Democratic debate between Clinton and Sanders in Durham, New Hampshire.
