President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, will sit down with Barbara Walters for a one-hour special on ABC, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Walters will interview the President-elect and future First Lady in Chicago, and parts of the interview will also air on “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight” and “Nightline.”

The interview will cover the Obama family’s transition into the White House, as well as economy and foreign policy topics, according to ABC. It also comes on the heels of Obama naming his financial advisers, which is likely to be addressed as well.
