ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Lands Obama Interview

President Obama will give an exclusive interview to ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, the network says.

Stephanopoulos will speak to Obama tomorrow, with the first excerpts to air on “ABC World News” tomorrow evening. The full interview will air Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America” and in the wee hours of Thursday on “Nightline.” Other excerpts will air on ABCNews.com, Yahoo! and the other ABC platforms.

The President is trying to woo congressional leaders in an effort to avoid yet another budget showdown, and end the sequester. Obama was last interviewed by ABC in December, and by Stephanopoulos two years ago, in April 2011.
