BOSTON — Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren committed today to a televised debate hosted by the Boston Media Consortium, a group that includes WGBH TV and Radio, the Boston Globe, NECN, WCVB-TV, WHDH-TV, and WBUR-FM. 
“Elizabeth is looking forward to the opportunity to discuss the issues facing middle class families across the Commonwealth,” Mindy Myers, Warren’s campaign manager, said in a prepared statement. “The voters want to hear from the candidates about their plans to create jobs, help students attend college and create a level playing field for all Americans.”
In its letter to the candidates, the Boston Media Consortium proposed Oct. 30 and Nov. 1 as possible dates. The final date and site have yet to be determined, however.
Warren and Brown have already committed to two other televised debates – one hosted by WBZ-TV’s Jon Keller, and another in Springfield hosted by a consortium of media outlets. A call to Brown’s campaign was not immediately returned Wednesday afternoon.
