08 Aug DEADLINE: The Weather Channel Lands Sit-Down Interview With Joe Biden To Talk Climate Change
The topic was climate change and extreme weather as Biden visited the Grand Canyon on Tuesday.
The Weather Channel said that the full interview will air on the network on Wednesday starting at 6 a.m. ET on America’s Morning Headquarters. It will be replayed throughout the day on the channel’s streaming app.
The White House has been focusing in part on Biden appearances in non-traditional media, in as much as The Weather Channel is an alternative to Beltway media. Last month, Biden sat for an interview for Jay Shetty’s On Purpose podcast.
Ali Zaidi, Biden’s national climate adviser, was asked by a reporter Monday about a Washington Post poll that showed most people — 57% — disapprove of the president’s handling of climate change. That is despite the passage last year of the Inflation Reduction Act, which included one of the largest federal outlays to tackle the climate crisis.
