Conservative Radio Host Smerconish Gets Obama One-on-One

President Obama will sit down with conservative radio host Michael Smerconish at the White House tomorrow, Politico‘s Playbook reports this morning. Smerconish will also broadcast his afternoon show from the White House- the first radio show of this presidency to broadcast live from 1600, Mike Allen notes.

Smerconish said today: “I am proud and excited to be the first radio broadcaster on the watch of this President to be invited into the White House to interview the President of the United States and include telephone calls from my listeners… There are no ground rules. I am not prescreening with the White House on what the subject matter will be. I run my radio program with dignity and respect for this president and other public officials. I do not intend to take calls from listeners who want to offer platitudes, nor take cheap shots against the President. I used the last portion of today’s program to seek out listeners with pointed direct and substantive questions about Health Care. We’re looking for questions that have not already been asked.”
