First look to air Thursday on NBC Nightly News and Friday on TODAY
Sept. 14, 2023 — This Sunday, Sept. 17 on NBC, the inaugural broadcast of Meet the Press with Kristen Welker will feature an exclusive interview with former President Donald Trump. The pretaped interview will take place Thursday in Bedminster, N.J. and will be Trump’s first broadcast network interview since leaving office.
The same invitation to join the program has been extended to President Biden.
Sunday’s program will feature insight and analysis from NBC News Managing Washington Editor Carol Lee, NBC News Senior Justice Correspondent and Co-Anchor of Saturday TODAY Laura Jarrett, and New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker.
Welker officially assumes the role of moderator this week, following last week’s on-air handoff with former moderator Chuck Todd. Previously, Welker served as NBC News Chief White House Correspondent and the Co-Anchor of Saturday TODAY, earning praise for her performance as debate moderator during the second presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump in 2020.
Early releases from the interview will appear on NBC Nightly News on Thursday, TODAY on Friday, and will be published on NBCNews.com. Transcripts and video will be available for each release, with the final transcript and video available on Sunday morning.
