NBC News’ Brian Williams has booked Edward Snowden‘s first U.S. television interview, the network said on Thursday.
Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked government surveillance documents, has previously given interviews to a German broadcaster and delivered an address via satellite at the South by Southwest festival.
In April, he also appeared on Russia Today in a prerecorded clip asking questions of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Snowden has not, however, sat down with a U.S. broadcaster since his video remarks to The Guardian were first posted in July 2013. He has given interviews to U.S. newspapers including The New York Times and the Washington Post since the story broke.
Williams interviewed Snowden in Moscow for “several hours” this week, NBC said, for an hourlong special to air at 10 p.m. on May 28.
