WRC, KYW and Cox Television Talk Debt Deadline with President Obama

President Obama sat down with three local stations yesterday to talk about the national debt and the economy. This is the second round of local interviews Obama has done this month, as the White House makes a continued push to localize their message.

Obama was interviewed by Chris May of KYW (pictured at left), Jim Vance of WRC and Scott Macfarlane of Cox Television. The hot topic in the interviews, which ran about eight minutes each, was the increasingly acrimonious negotiations between Obama and congressional leadership as the debt deadline looms.

The interviews were embargoed until 5 p.m. yesterday, but began running on the respective stations on the evening broadcasts. Cox Television owns 11 local stations nationwide and ran Macfarlane’s interview on several different stations.

Obama To Do Another Round of Local Interviews

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.
