NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Two days after a Super Bowl exclusive with "Today" host Matt Lauer, President Barack Obama is extending his media profile with sit-downs with all the major networks.

Obama will talk separately with the anchors of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News Channel at the Oval Office on Tuesday. The networks will air their interviews over the course of the afternoon and the early evening.

The interviews were requested and coordinated by the White House. It wasn't immediately clear how long the interviews would be.
