Troubled Toronto mayor Rob Ford will give a sit-down interview with Matt Lauer Tuesday on NBC’s “Today.”

As part of Ford’s media offensive, he was also interviewed by Anderson Cooper 360’s Bill Weir, which aired at 8 p.m. ET Monday. And ABC said late Monday that Ford would also appear on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America.”

Ford has become a focus of intense media interest since admitting, earlier this month, to using crack cocaine, after a video surfaced earlier this year of him allegedly smoking crack.

Meanwhile in Canada, Ford’s reality show “Ford Nation” debuts Monday evening.
