Barack Obama’s First Post-Debate Interview Goes To Diane Sawyer

We already noted Mitt Romney‘s first post-debate interview, now it looks like The President has slated his own.

President Obama will sit down with “ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer next week. Portions of the interview will air beginning the evening of October 10 on “World News.”

The full interview will be included as part of a series called “Portrait of a President,” which will air later this month. ABC conducted similar “Portrait of a President” segments in 2008 profiling Obama and his challenger John McCain. No word on whether Romney has agreed to sit down for an interview as well.

As Politico notes:

The interview will be his first with a national, English-language news program since the attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Since that attack, the president has given interviews to The View, David Letterman, The Today Show, Telemundo, Univision, and a number of regional outlets in the battleground states.
