MSNBC will broadcast a special edition of “Hardball” from Winthrop University next Friday ahead of the Democratic presidential forum featuring interviews with the candidates by Rachel Maddow.

The political talk show “Hardball with Chris Matthews” will broadcast live with co-host Steve Kornacki at 6 p.m. on Nov. 6. A news release from MSNBC didn’t specify where on campus the show will broadcast.

The two-hour presidential forum following “Hardball” will be televised from Winthrop’s Byrnes Auditorium beginning at 8 p.m. Maddow will interview Democratic candidates separately.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will attend.

After the forum, Maddow and Matthews will also co-host a post-forum analysis show from campus, according to MSNBC.

South Carolina’s Democratic Party organized the forum along with state parties from other Southern states. Tickets for the “First in the South” event are free but have already been allocated. A waiting list was set up online through the S.C. Democratic Party after tickets were “sold out” within five minutes of being available earlier this month.
