ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos has snagged the first television interview with Jason Collins, the first openly gay NBA player. Collins, a free agent who played for the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards this season, penned this week’s Sports Illustrated cover story, writing: “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”

Stephanopoulos’ interview, which is billed as an exclusive, will air Tuesday on “Good Morning America” and across the other ABC News platforms.
