Interviewing Obama

Interviewing Obama

In March, Jon Delano ’71 became the first Pennsylvania television reporter to do a sit-down TV interview with President Obama at the White House.  Delano, the Money & Politics Editor at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, questioned the President about how the administration’s commitment to education squared with the drastic cuts to state education budgets going on across the nation, and about his views on U.S. reliance on nuclear power in the wake of the disaster in Japan.

In 2008, Delano was also the first Pennsylvania TV reporter to interview Candidate Obama.
