Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly will interview Donald Trump during the Super Bowl pregame coverage taking place next month.
The interview will be held at the White House the morning of the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5, and will be broadcasted later in the day during Fox Broadcasting’s pregame telecast at approximately 4 p.m. ET.
This will be the first interview O’Reilly does with Trump since the 2016 presidential campaign. This will also take place two weeks after President-elect Donald Trump has been sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
It has become tradition in recent years for the President to sit for a one-on-one interview to be broadcast ahead of the Super Bowl, which rotates among Fox, CBS, and NBC. O’Reilly interviewed President Barack Obama in 2011 and 2014- the last two times the game was broadcast on Fox.
While O’Reilly was undoubtedly a vocal television critic of Obama’s presidency, he was occasionally criticized during the 2016 presidential campaign for not taking equally tough stands against the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.
