As the fight over raising the debt ceiling heats up in Washington, Pres. Barack Obama is doing yet another round of interviews with local TV stations today.
Obama will sit down at 2pmET with reporters from Washington, DC’s WRC, Philadelphia’s KYW and Cox Television, which has 15 stations in 11 markets. The interviews will take place in the White House Map Room and will focus on debt reduction and the economy — the same location and topic as the four local interviews the president did last week.
KYW’s interview, conducted by evening anchor Chris May, will air at 5, 6 and 11 p.m. tonight. KYW is promoting the Obama interview as an exclusive (above). The Cox Television interview will be conducted by Washington correspondent Scott Macfarlane.
