Through its annual Hometown Debate Series, IOPL raises awareness of key issues by bringing newsmakers to communities across the state.
The 2020 Debate Series highlights North Carolina’s Council of State races. Often overshadowed, these offices play a critical role in the operations of state government and the formation of public policy.
By partnering with Spectrum News, the Debate Series airs statewide multiple times each weekend following the event. Spectrum News Political Reporter and Anchor Loretta Boniti will return as moderator of the series again this year.
