Obama To Spend Two Days On Campaign Trail With Brian Williams For NBC News Special

Following President Barack Obama’s Tuesday night appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the president will give NBC’s Rock Center anchor Brian Williams inside access to him on the campaign trail. In a two-day series, Williams will follow Obama on the campaign trail and broadcast interviews with the president on October 25 and 26.

POLITICO’s Dylan Byers writes that the president has no plans today to give any other news network that level of access to his campaign, but that could change in coming days.

NBC requested similar access to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. Rock Center asked Romney to participate in a prime time special on the Mormon Church in August but the campaign also declined to participate in that NBC News special report.
