Obama’s First Post-Debate Interview Goes to ABC

President Obama's sit-down with Diane Sawyer will air in part on Oct. 10, with an extended version airing later this month

President Obama will get a second chance to explain himself on Oct. 10 on "ABC World News," when he gives his first interview after Wednesday's presidential debate to anchor Diane Sawyer.

The interview — which will take place at the White House — occurs the night before the vice presidential debate and will air in part on "ABC World News," with other portions being highlighted across other ABC broadcasts and platforms such as  ABCNews.com, Yahoo!, ABC News Radio, and local network affiliates.

The extended interview will air later this month, as part of the special "Portrait of a President."

Hopefully, the nation's chief executive will remember to look directly into the camera more often this time.
