POTUS Parley

Like most broadcast entities, UNC-TV plans its programming schedule months in advance. However, late-arriving offerings, breaking news and the like can cause for changes to the promoted schedule. We try to alert viewers to these alterations as soon as we can but are often given little time or resources to do so.

As such, I thought I’d mention a schedule change occurring next week. On Wednesday, June 1st, PBS Newshour is presenting a one-hour primetime special called Questions For President Obama in which Gwen Ifill will sit down for an exclusive interview with President Barack Obama in Elkhart, Indiana. A town hall meeting will follow, giving local residents time to ask the questions of the President.

I think that in a year where those striving for the presidency are getting most of the attention, it’s a good thing the PBS Newshour is taking the time to present a television event with the man who currently holds the job.

Questions For President Obama airs Wednesday at 8pm on UNC-TV.
