Bubba didn't specify debates, he said "first live media broadcast or news reporting". That could be radio broadcast of any news story.

Bubba, did you mean debates?

Is this the one?

In 1920, KDKA broadcast live election returns. Looks like the first time.
Info from
http://www.ieee.org/organizations/history_center/milestones_photos/kdka.html

Westinghouse Radio Station KDKA was a world pioneer of commercial radio broadcasting. Transmitting with a power of 100 watts on a wavelength of 360 meters, KDKA began scheduled programming with the Harding-Cox Presidential election returns on November 2, 1920. A shed, housing studio and transmitter, was atop the K Building of the Westinghouse East Pittsburgh works. Conceived by C.P. Davis, broadcasting as a public service evolved from Frank Conrad's weekly experimental broadcasts over his amateur radio station 8XK, attracting many regular listeners who had wireless receiving sets.

"Will anyone hearing this broadcast please communicate with us, as we are anxious to know how far the broadcast is reaching and how it is being received."

Any Self Respecting Pittsburger knows that But I was assuming he meant debates.

I also believe that they were the first 50,00 watt station. Might be wrong on that but I do remember folks at home saying that.
