The New York-based network news anchors heading to Washington, DC this morning to interview Pres. Obama.
The interviews are back-to-back beginning at 3:55pmET. Each network gets 7 minutes. And the interviews are embargoed for air until 6pmET. Drawing from a hat, the order had been determined as this: NBC, CNN, CBS, Fox News, ABC and PBS.
ABC’s Diane Sawyer and CBS’s Scott Pelley will anchor their shows from Washington today. Savannah Guthrie will conduct the interview for NBC as Brian Williams, still recovering from knee replacement surgery, cannot travel. DC-based Chris Wallace of Fox News and Wolf Blitzer of CNN will conduct the interviews for their networks. Gwen Ifill, who tonight becomes the permanent co-anchor with Judy Woodruff of “PBS NewsHour” gets the PBS interview.
