Bill O’Reilly, President Obama To Meet At Super Bowl For Second Time

A separate taped segment of interview to appear on "The O'Reilly Factor" a day later

Fox News Channel personality Bill O’Reilly will interview President Barack Obama during the pre-game coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII, the first time the cable-news host has sat down with the Commander-in-Chief since Super Bowl XLV in 2011.

The interview, which will start at approximately 4:30 p.m. Eastern, will be presented live on Fox Broadcasting  leading up to the February 2 match-up between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos telecast from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Both Fox Broadcasting and Fox News Channel are operated by 21st Century Fox.

It has become tradition for the sitting President to grant an interview with a journalist from a news division operated by the media company broadcasting the event. Scott Pelley interviewed President Obama for CBS in 2013 and Matt Lauer interviewed him for NBC in 2012. In 2011, O’Reilly asked President Obama questions about such topics as unrest in Egypt and health-care reform.

O’Reilly also interviewed President Obama during his run for President in 2008.
