President Barack Obama will be interviewed from the White House Friday on MTV.
The live special, Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview with the President, is Obama’s attempt to reach out to young voters. It will air at 5 p.m. and last half an hour, according to The Wrap. It will be broadcast on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams, and on MTV.com and MTV’s mobile platform.
Obama will chat with MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway, and correspondent Andrew Jenks will field questions from people on a college campus in Washington D.C.
Before that, Obama will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Although Obama’s challenger for the White House, Mitt Romney, has been invited to sit down with MTV, he has yet to reply.
Questions can be submitted for Obama via MTV’s Facebook page, according to the AP. Subjects expected to be touched on include jobs and college cost.
The network noted that this is the first time in this year’s campaign that a candidate has focused on concerns of young voters.
