Former President Barack Obama to be Interviewed on “60 Minutes” and “CBS Sunday Morning” Ahead of Highly Anticipated Release of His New Book “A Promised Land”

Former President Barack Obama will sit down for interviews with “60 Minutes” and “CBS Sunday Morning” on Sunday, November 15, in what will be his first television interviews following the 2020 presidential election.

Exactly 12 years ago, Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle, appeared on “60 Minutes” after he was elected as the 44th president of the United States. The former president will return to CBS News to speak with Gayle King for “CBS Sunday Morning,” and Scott Pelley for “60 Minutes.” The interviews will be conducted in Washington, D.C.

The discussions will be Mr. Obama’s first since Joe Biden, his vice president and close friend, became the projected 46th president. The interview will also focus on the upcoming release of Mr. Obama’s new book, “A Promised Land,” which is one of the year’s most anticipated books.

“A Promised Land” is the first book of an expected two volumes, which will detail Mr. Obama’s first forays into political office, his 2008 election and end with the death of Osama Bin Laden in 2011.
