*Turner Sports and CBS Sports have secured an exclusive joint interview today with President Barack Obama and U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron during halftime of the NCAA tournament’s first game.
President Obama is hosting the leader of the British government this week, and Turner’s TruTV gets the exclusive along with CBS’ Clark Kellogg, one-third of the top broadcasting team for the tournament. Kellogg has interviewed Obama twice before, both times in 2010, both times sticking mainly to basketball.
The two leaders will attend Tuesday’s first-round game in Dayton, Ohio. The NCAA has four play-in games to start the three-week tournament, and the first day’s matches are Mississippi Valley State vs. Western Kentucky and BYU vs. Iona.
“The president and the prime minister look forward to a great game between some of our nation’s finest collegiate athletes,” an unnamed White House official told The Columbus Dispatch this week.
