Michael Smerconish to interview President Obama


Dial Global’s Michael Smerconish will interview Barack Obama on his national radio show 10/27, the White House announced. While there are no guidelines for the discussion, Michael’s listeners really want to know what is going on with the state of America, from the mid-term elections to health care, real estate, and especially the economy. Michael will also check in with the President on the hunt for Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.

“It’s a privilege anytime I have the opportunity to interview the President,” says Smerconish. “I’m sure he knows he can count on my directness as well as my dignity and respect.”

This is the fifth time that Michael has interviewed the President – including a live broadcast from the White House. Says Amy Bolton, Senior VP, News & Talk for Dial Global: “Michael has developed a definite rapport with the President, I think because he pulls no punches and even where there is disagreement on the issues the conversation is always conducted with intelligence and decorum.”
