WSIU, PBS NewsHour to Broadcast Exclusive Interview with President Obama

PBS NewsHour co-anchor and managing editor Gwen Ifill will sit down for an exclusive interview with President Barack Obama in Elkhart, Indiana as part of the two-part primetime special, Questions for President Obama: A PBS NewsHour Special, airing Wednesday, June 1 beginning at 7 p.m. CT on WSIU-TV 8/WUSI-TV 16, the public television stations of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and PBS stations across the country.

 

Following the interview, PBS NewsHour will host a town hall during which Elkhart residents will ask questions of the President about a variety of topics. An excerpt from the interview and town hall will air earlier that evening in the PBS NewsHour’s regular time slot of 6 p.m. on WSIU Public Television.

Ifill is also the moderator and managing editor of the PBS series Washington Week, which airs on WSIU Public Television on Fridays at 7 p.m. In February 2016, with co-anchor Judy Woodruff, Ifill co-moderated the PBS NewsHour Democratic Primary Debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. During the 2004 and 2008 Presidential elections, Ifill moderated Vice Presidential debates. Ifill has covered eight Presidential campaigns, and during the 2008 campaign season, she won the George Foster Peabody Award after bringing Washington Week to live audiences around the country as part of a 10-city tour.
