EXCLUSIVE: BRIAN WILLIAMS INTERVIEWS PRESIDENT OBAMA ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL
OCTOBER 21, 2012 – In the days immediately following the final presidential debate and with less than two weeks left until election day, Brian Williams and NBC News cameras will spend two days on the campaign trail with President Barack Obama -- taking viewers behind the scenes with rare, exclusive access and multiple interviews with the President.
Williams will follow the President as he sets out on a seven-state campaign swing, getting out of Washington to make his case for re-election directly to Americans across the country. In his wide-ranging interviews, Williams will press the President and his team on the issues that matter most to voters, from jobs and the economy to foreign policy to partisan gridlock in Congress.
An excerpt will air as Williams reports from the trail for “NBC Nightly News” on Wednesday, October 24, followed by clips on “TODAY” and “NBC Nightly News” and extended coverage on “Rock Center with Brian Williams” on Thursday, October 25.
Patrick Burkey is the executive producer of “NBC Nightly News;” David Corvo is the senior executive producer and Alexandra Wallace is the executive producer of “Rock Center with Brian Williams;” Jim Bell is the executive producer of “TODAY;” and Subrata De is the senior producer of this exclusive interview.
