MILWAUKEE (AP) — PBS released the details Monday for a Democratic presidential debate scheduled for next month in Milwaukee.

PBS NewsHour will produce the debate Feb. 11 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. PBS and WETA, the flagship public television station in Washington, announced the debate Monday.

NewsHour co-host Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff will moderate the debate. It will be broadcast nationwide on PBS stations and streamed online at pbs.org/newshour.

The Democratic National Committee announced in August that Wisconsin would get a debate in February or March 2016. It's the first Democratic debate following the Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses and the Feb. 9 New Hampshire primary.

A Republican presidential debate was held in Milwaukee in November.
