ABC's Stephanopoulos interviews Darren Wilson
NEW YORK - ABC News' George Stephanopoulos has landed the much-sought first television interview with Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, speaking to him for an hour Tuesday in Missouri.
The network interrupted its afternoon programming on Tuesday for Stephanopoulos to talk about the interview. ABC will also feature the interview on "Nightline" and its evening and morning news programs.
In television terms, the Wilson interview was one of the biggest "gets" of the year. Wilson sat down with Stephanopoulos, the "Good Morning America" co-host, less than 24 hours after a grand jury decided not to indict the 28-year-old officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown this summer.
ABC said it will also make the full interview available on its website, ABCNews.com.
