QUICK TAKES

Next up for Palin: Sean Hannity

September 13, 2008|Matea Gold

The Sarah Palin media roll-out continues. After doing two days of interviews with ABC's Charles Gibson this week, the Alaska governor will sit down with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Tuesday.

It will be Palin's second television interview since becoming the Republican vice presidential nominee and her first on cable television. The choice of Hannity, a conservative commentator, underscores her appeal to the party's base, which has been energized by her selection.

Hannity will interview Palin in Cincinnati and portions of the interview will air on "Hannity & Colmes" on Tuesday and Wednesday. Her appearance on the show will likely translate to a major ratings bounce: About 9.73 million viewers tuned in to ABC's "World News" on Thursday for the first part of Gibson's conversation with Palin, 24% more than a week ago, according to early Nielsen data.

Meanwhile, Hannity's colleague Greta Van Susteren landed an interview Friday with Palin's husband, Todd. Their exchange will air on Van Susteren's show "On the Record" on Monday and Tuesday.
