KGO’s Dan Ashley to Interview President Obama [Updated]

KGO reporter Dan Ashley is traveling from San Francisco to Washington this week to interview President Obama, according to the ABC O&O.

The interview comes in the middle of rising tensions between the White House and the White House Correspondents Association over the level of access the press has to the President. Ashley’s reports will begin airing on KGO Wednesday evening.

The President has no interviews on his public schedule Tuesday, although he often does a handful of local interviews at once. Know of any other stations with the White House granted interviews to? Let us know: tvspy@mediabistro.com.

>Update: At least four more local interviews for the President tomorrow. Obama will be sitting down with Debi Chard of WCSC in Charleston, S.C., Kevin Ogle of KFOR in Oklahoma City, Yunji de Nies of KITV in Honolulu, Hawaii and Liz Brunner of WCVB in Boston.

Yunji de Nies Joins KITV From ABC News

Yunji de Nies, who has been a correspondent for ABC News since 2006, is returning to her native Hawaii for a job at KITV in Honolulu.

“It was a no-brainer for me,” de Nies told the Honolulu Star Advertiser of her return to Hawaii. “I just didn’t think it would happen so soon.”

de Nies begins September 10 as co-anchor of the 6 p.m. newscast alongside Paula Akana and the 10 p.m. newscast alongside Kenny Choi. She will also do some reporting for the ABC-affiliated KITV. At ABC News, she was an Atlanta-based correspondent who covered the Southeast region across all the network’s platforms.
