Broadcasters Planning To Carry Obama Press Conference

This afternoon at 3 PM, President Obama is scheduled to have a press conference to answer questions from the White House press corps.

While he has answered a few questions at press events over the last few months, his last real press conference was in April.  He is scheduled to leave on a family vacation to Martha’s Vineyard Saturday.

The broadcast networks, ABC, CBS and NBC all say they will be carrying the press conference live. As usual, expect the cable news channels to cover it in full as well. Bob Schieffer will anchor for CBS. Lester Holt will anchor for NBC, with Chuck Todd at the White House. David Muir anchors for ABC with Jon Karl and Martha Raddatz in DC.
