By Nitsi

New York, July 27 (ANI): U.S. President Barack Obama is set to appear on ABC's talk show, "The View".

While making the announcement, Executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie said this marks the first time a sitting U.S. president has visited a daytime talk show.

They said the majority of the hour would be devoted to Obama's appearance, which will touch on topics including jobs, the economy, the Gulf oil spill and family life inside the White House.

"We are so pleased and honoured," the New York Post quoted Walters as saying.

Obama's appearance is part of the show's continuing "Red, White and View" campaign, which is committed to political guests and discussions. The show has also welcomed Vice President Joe Biden in April.

Obama was last a guest on "The View" in March 2008 when he was a U.S. senator. (ANI)
