New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will grant his first TV interview since revealing he had lap-band surgery to NBC’s Brian Williams, with an excerpt airing on tonight’s “NBC Nightly News.”

TVNewser hears that the interview has been on the schedule for some time, before news of the surgery was revealed by the New York Post this morning. The full interview–which will highlight the rebuilding of the Jersey Shore–will air next week on “Rock Center.”

Christie has been pretty close with the team from MSNBC and NBC News recently, with a number of appearances on programs for both the cable channel and broadcast network.

He appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” last Monday, and will be the guest co-host of the 8 AM hour of “Today” on may 24, live from the Jersey Shore.
