Barack Obama Favors CBS for First Post-Election Interview


Barack Obama


Barack Obama and his wife Michelle will sit down on Friday, November 14 for an interview segment on the eye's '60 Minutes' program.

If John McCain went to NBC and Sarah Palin opted FOX for their first post-election interviews, Barack Obama decides to give the honor to CBS in the network's TV newsmagazine "60 Minutes". The Democrat who won the election over McCain will sit down with longtime-correspondent Steve Croft, accompanied by his wife and future First Lady, Michelle Obama.

The exclusive interview is scheduled to be held today, November 14 in Chicago but it will only air on Sunday, November 16. No clue yet as in how long the segment will last but judging from previous interviews with presidents and candidates, the interview is expected to fill the entire hour.

It thus becomes the second time Obama giving the privilege to CBS, for in August, he sat down for the show with his running mate Joe Bidden for a joint interview. This past Sunday, "60" also nabbed an interview with Obama's senior aides and the segment pulled in 18.5 million viewers.

The defeated Republican team, McCain and Palin gave separate interviews after the election on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and FOX's Greta Van Susteren respectively.
