Barbara Walters to interview the Obamas

One-hour special to air Wednesday night on ABC

NEW YORK -- The Barack Obama media tour is making another stop -- and at another high-profile place.

A week after the president-elect and first lady-elect Michelle Obama spoke to "60 Minutes," they're sitting down for an interview with ABC's Barbara Walters. It'll air as a one-hour special Wednesday night on ABC.

ABC said the interview would touch on the transition, the economy, foreign policy and how the family is dealing with the immense change in their lives. Walters will do the interview late in the day in Chicago.

ABC no doubt hopes that the Obama interview, which comes on the heels of a press conference in which the president-elect named his financial advisers, will be as much of a ratings success as the Obamas' interview with "60 Minutes" two Sundays ago that gave the newsmagazine its best ratings in years.

Parts of the interview will also air on "Good Morning America," "World News" and "Nightline."
