President Obama is making his way to the State Department to deliver a highly-anticipated speech on Middle East affairs.
CNN is going big on the coverage with a CNN/U.S. and CNNI simulcast beginning at 11:30amET. Wolf Blitzer, Suzanne Malveaux and Hala Gorani anchor coverage with Fareed Zakaria in Egypt, and Gloria Borger, John King, Henry and Jill Dougherty in DC as well as multiple correspondents in several North African and Middle Eastern countries.
Pres. Obama will only be doing one TV interview after the speech, and it’s not with an American broadcaster. BBC gets the sit-down with Obama at the White House. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be giving an interview to Katie Couric. This is Couric’s last day with the CBS Evening News. She’ll return to New York this afternoon to anchor her final broadcast.
