(Newser) – Barack Obama will give his first post-election interview to 60 Minutes, reports Variety. The show's Steve Kroft will interview the president-elect and the future first lady in Chicago this week, and the show will air Sunday night. Obama seems to have a soft spot for the CBS institution—he also granted it his first joint interview with Joe Biden after the VP pick.
