CNN anchor Anderson Cooper is among the four journalists announced Friday as moderators of the upcoming presidential debates.

The announcement, made by the Commission on Presidential Debates, makes Cooper the first openly gay man to host a presidential debate in the general election.

The first debate, to be held on Monday, September 26, will be hosted by Lester Holt of NBC Nightly News.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will square off in a second debate to be held on Sunday, October 9. This town hall-format debate will be moderated by ABC News' Martha Raddatz and Cooper.

Fox News' Chris Wallace will host a third and final debate on Wednesday, October 19.

“These journalists bring extensive experience to the job of moderating, and understand the importance of using expanded time periods effectively,” the commission said in making its announcement. “We are grateful for their willingness to moderate, and confident that the public will learn more about the candidates and the issues as a result.”

Other out journalists, including Cooper, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and CNN's Don Lemon, hosted debates during the primaries.

CBS News' Elaine Quijano will moderate a vice-presidential debate between Virginia Senator Tim Kaine and Indiana Governor Mike Pence on Tuesday, October 4.
