NEW YORK (AP) - Former President George W. Bush is giving the first one-on-one television interview about his presidency since leaving the White House to NBC News’ Matt Lauer (LOW’-uhr).
NBC News said Monday that Lauer will interview Bush for a one-hour prime-time show Nov. 8, the day before Bush’s book “Decision Points” is released. Bush also will appear live on NBC’s “Today” show Nov. 10.
Bush will discuss the defining decisions he’s made in his personal and political lives.
Bush was the nation’s 43rd president. He left office in January 2009 deeply unpopular. He has kept a low profile since returning to his home in Texas, working on his memoir and appearing only occasionally at paid speeches.
His daughter Jenna Bush Hager is a correspondent who files reports for the “Today” show.
