FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY AND WIFE LYNNE CHENEY SIT DOWN FOR
THEIR FIRST LIVE, IN-STUDIO JOINT TELEVISION INTERVIEW ON “THE VIEW,” SEPTEMBER 13
Richard “Dick” Cheney, who served under former President George W. Bush as the 46th Vice President of the United States and his wife, Lynne Cheney, are scheduled for their first live, in-studio joint television interview on “The View,” TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET) on the ABC Television Network. The appearance is part of the show’s continuing “Red, White & View” campaign highlighting interviews and informational segments that promote civic responsibility.
Former Vice President Cheney, making his first appearance on “The View,” is promoting his book IN MY TIME: A Personal and Political Memoir. For more than 40 years, he served at the highest levels of government and the private sector. From his position as the youngest White House Chief of Staff under Gerald Ford to becoming Secretary of Defense under George H.W. Bush (overseeing America’s military during Operation Desert Storm and the historic transition at the end of the Cold War), to serving two terms as Vice President under George W. Bush during the dawn of the Global War on Terror, former Vice President Cheney has played a key role in events that have shaped history and continues to offer his advice and commentary on the state of the nation and world today. Lynne Cheney, a public speaker, former talk-show host and author, served as the Second Lady of the United States from 2001-09 and has been a previous guest twice, in 2004 and 2002.
In September 2008, “The View” show launched its highly successful “Red, White & View” campaign highlighting interviews and informational segments helping to promote civic responsibility during the election season. The “Red, White & View” campaign is another example of how “The View” establishes itself as an important player in the political process.
Celebrating its 15th Season, live, Tuesday, September 6, 2011 “The View” continues its original promise of five women, diverse points of view, tackling the hottest topics in the news, a formula proven to deliver one extraordinary show. Often imitated but never duplicated, “The View” is a certified part of the American zeitgeist, thereby establishing that there is no show like “The View.” “The View,” an innovative live, daily daytime talk show from executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie, launched on August 11, 1997. Since that time, “The View” has grown into a pop culture phenomenon, making television history in 2010 with guest President Barack Obama, the first time a sitting U.S. President would visit a daytime talk show.
“The View” features Daytime Emmy Award-winning hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. It’s the original forum in which real women discuss everyday issues, share their opinions and engage in colorful conversations. Broadcast in HDTV and produced in stereo sound, it is now available to watch online daily at 4:00 p.m., ET/1:00 p.m., PT on the ABC Digital Full Episode Player at ABC.com. “The View” is produced by ABC Daytime and Ms. Walters’ Barwall Productions, with Ms. Walters serving as executive producer along with Bill Geddie, who is executive producer for “The Barbara Walters Specials.” “The View” is directed by Mark Gentile.
