For those who were under the impression that Gov. Sarah Palin was to scared, timid, or air headed to speak...well think again! Palin is no Barbie Doll! Charles Gibson of ABC will conduct THREE separate interviews with the Republican vice presidential candidate.
The 3 interviews will form the basis of a special prime-time edition of "20/20" Friday.
Gibson's interviews with Palin will be spread around other ABC news programs.
"World News" Thursday, (& Friday?) will have excerpts of the talks.
"Nightline" and "Good Morning America." also.
"The prime-time special, at 10 p.m. EDT, will also include a bio of Palin by ABC's Kate Snow and a round-table discussion on the presidential race moderated by George Stephanopoulos.
The Alaska Republican has proven to be a ratings-grabber during her short time on the national political scene. Her speech to the GOP national convention last week was seen by more than 40 million people, according to Nielsen Media Research.
A Fox News Channel documentary, "Governor Palin: An American Woman" last Saturday was the highest-rated prime-time documentary in the network's history, with 2.7 million viewers."
CNN is also planning a Palin special this weekend.
"The first interview with the Republican ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin went to People Magazine, which on (Aug 29) published its interview just hours after the surprise announcement was made."
I know that's a lot of information, and T.V. programing to get straight. That is why I highlighted it. Today I went out, and bought a new VHS tape for my combo VCR/DVD. Now comes the task of programing it. Shot! I should have picked up a People Magazine while I was at the store. Hm, I wounder if people will now start complaining that she's giving to many interviews?
Added Later - She is also on Entertainment Tonight Thursday & Friday.
