Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has been tapped to interview President Barack Obama on Super Bowl Sunday. The interview will air ahead of the big game as part of Fox's pre-game coverage.
According to USA Today, this will be the third time the conservative news host has interviewed the president.
O'Reilly interviewed Obama for the 2011 Super Bowl where they discussed national topics and, of course, football where Obama admitted he doesn't want "people coming up and chitting and chatting" during the game.
New York Daily News notes that it is a tradition for the president to be interviewed before the Super Bowl game. The interviewer is usually someone from the network televising the championship game.
Matt Lauer sat down with Obama in 2012 for NBC and CBS selected Scott Pelley to interview in 2013.
A shortened version of the interview will air before the big game, while the longer version will be shown on Feb. 3 during The O'Reilly Factor.
