Ole Miss Prepares for Presidential Debate

The 1250-seat Ford Center on the campus of Ole Miss is transforming into a debate hall for next week's presidential debate.

Some 200 seats had to be removed to accommodate the set and the cameras.

Next Friday, the candidates will each walk through individually to get comfortable in the space, and see how they look on camera.

A 25-thousand square foot air conditioned tent has been erected for members of the media complete with 800 phones, computer-ready workstations, and dozens of flat screen TV's.

Remember to tune in to next Friday's Presidential debate right here on WLBT at 8 p.m.
