George Stephanopoulos to Interview Jason Collins, First Openly Gay NBA Player, on ‘GMA’

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos has snagged the first television interview with Jason Collins, the first openly gay NBA player. Collins, a free agent who played for the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards this season, penned this week’s Sports Illustrated cover story, writing: “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”

Stephanopoulos’ interview, which is billed as an exclusive, will air Tuesday on “Good Morning America” and across the other ABC News platforms.
