Six City of Knoxville mayoral candidates debated last night in the only televised forum for the race. WBIR-TV, Channel 10 broadcast the hour-long debate live, and Jewelry Television donated its state-of-the-art studio, as well as numerous staff, for the Aug. 6 event.

WBIR anchor John Becker moderated the discussion, posing questions to the candidates about transportation, priorities, spending and taxing.
