WASHINGTON (WISH) - 24-Hour News 8 Anchor Debby Knox was given a rare opportunity to do a one-on-one interview with President Barack Obama. She will interview him Thursday with updates from the White House on 24-Hour News 8 at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.
It's a little surreal, but I am sitting in CBS correspondent Bill Plant's desk at the White House writing this story. It's early and if Bill shows up, I've been told my squatter's rights come to a quick end.
Getting onto the grounds of the White House was a little tricky. We were dropped off at the wrong entrance and had to make a mad dash for the area the press is assigned.
We were greeted by two long time employees from CBS who made sure we scrambled up the right steps. Charles and Dennis checked my microphone and it was just a minute or two before I was talking with Joy and Scott on Daybreak.
Right after the live shot the CBS guys escorted us right into the briefing room. I have to admit, it's much smaller than it looks on TV. But it's cool to see. Everything is blue.
Forecast 8 Chief Meteorologist Steve Bray and I continue to go over our questions for the president. I am very aware the president will use the time to press his message.
It's a touch cold but not bad — at least it's not raining.
People here are talking about the Christmas party which was held last night. Staff members seem to be in recovery mode. I am revved up but need another cup of coffee.
