Barack Obama To Return To '60 Minutes' Following Joe Biden's Win


Former President Barack Obama will make a pair of television appearances on Sunday following the election of President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris. Obama will begin his day on CBS Sunday Morning and then he will sit down for an interview on 60 Minutes. Gayle King will conduct the first interview while Scott Pelley will conduct the latter.

In addition to the most recent election of Biden and Harris, Obama will celebrate the twelfth anniversary of his appearance on 60 Minutes after his first presidential election. He appeared next to his wife and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Barack is now following in the footsteps of his accomplished wife. In 2019, Michelle Obama toured the world promoting her memoir, Becoming. To end the year, the former President is promoting his memoir, A Promised Land.

The Obama memoir chronicles his first term as President including key moments like the assassination of Osama Bin Laden. He is expected to follow up this memoir with a second book that will tell the story of his second term.

"There's no feeling like finishing a book, and I'm proud of this one," he said.

"I've spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in A Promised Land I've tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office: the key events and people who shaped it, my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made, and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then — and that as a nation we are grappling with still."

A Promised Land will be released November 17 and it will be available in 24 languages.
