Moyers' Interview Rescheduled

April 24, 2008

Bill Moyers's interview with Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's former pastor, will air on Milwaukee Public Television Sunday, April 27, on MPTV-10 at noon.

Originally scheduled to air Friday, April 25, at 8 p.m., the program was pre-empted by the opening night of MPTV's annual Great TV Auction.

Wright's PBS interview will be the first broadcast interview with a journalist since he became embroiled in a controversy for his remarks and his relationship with Barack Obama. Wright retired in early 2008 as pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where Senator Obama is a member. He has been at the center of controversy for comments he made during sermons.
