ABC “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts will interview President Obama today at the White House. The interview will air tonight on “ABC World News,” “Nightline” and tomorrow morning on “GMA.”
The interview comes as the general election campaign heats up between President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney. In addition, yesterday there was a pair of big news stories to come out of statewide elections, with GOP Senator Dick Lugar losing his primary in Indiana, and the state of North Carolina voting to ban gay marriage.

What’s going to change now that you’re in charge?
We don’t want to make too many changes. We want to make sure we have time to allow [the team] to engage with the viewers. GMA has a youth presence on Yahoo; they’re often reading and responding to comments and tweets on YouTube, Yahoo and Twitter. We’re able even to editorially make split-second decisions because we’ve got people who can extend a segment that’s working well longer than planned.
