NewsHour duo to interview president

Fresh off a big speech today on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, President Obama will spend some time with two veteran PBS journalists to talk about the state of the world.

The president has a full plate, you know?

Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff sat down with the president this afternoon after his speech marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington — and of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I Have a Dream” speech. Obama spoke from the very spot on the memorial steps where King’s words rang throughout the nation on that hot summer day a half-century ago.

But the president will have much more to discuss with Ifill and Woodruff: race relations, budget matters, health care, Syria, climate change, the economy … there all on the table.

The PBS NewsHour airs Monday through Friday at 6 p.m. on KACV-TV.

Tonight could be a time when the president perhaps makes news while speaking on public television.
