Alright media, you’ll get your wish — a chance to
vet interview Gov. Sarah Palin.
The Associated Press reports Palin offered her first interview to ABC News, to take place “in the coming weeks,” and that Charlie Gibson would conduct the interview.
Network sources tell TVNewser an announcement is set to be made soon, possibly later tonight, confirming the interview. It is likely the interview would air later this week, and on all platforms of ABC News.
