UPI News Service, 08/02/2010
Matt Lauer is to sit down with George W. Bush for the former U.S. president's first one-on-one television interview since leaving the Oval Office, NBC said.
The interview is to air in prime time Nov. 8 as a special "Matt Lauer Reports," the network said.
Bush, who was president from 2001-2009, will then join Lauer live on "Today" Nov. 10, the network said.
"Since leaving office, President Bush has granted no one-on-one television interviews about his presidency," NBC noted in a news release.
"President Bush will talk to Lauer about the details of his upcoming book, 'Decision Points,' to be released by Crown Publishers on Nov. 9, and he will discuss the defining decisions he has made in his personal and political life."
