President and Mrs. Obama sit down with Barbara Walters at the White House for their first joint television interview this year. In what has become an end-of-the-year tradition, Ms. Walters interviews the President first and then Mrs. Obama will join the conversation. The interview with the President and First Lady airs on a 20/20 Thanksgiving special on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m.,ET) on the ABC Television Network.
As part of a year-long celebration of Barbara Walters' remarkable career as one of America's most respected journalists, the hour will include memorable moments from her news-making interviews with every President and First Lady since Richard Nixon.
This marks the fifth time the President and First Lady have sat for a joint interview with Walters. The first was November of 2008, immediately following the presidential election, the second was Thanksgiving 2010, the third was December 2011, and the fourth was December 2012.
