President Obama is expected to hold a news conference this afternoon from the White House before departing Washington for the holidays. He’s likely to discuss the economy, health care and the NSA among other topics. The White House has not yet confirmed the news conference or announced a time.
West Virginia Public Radio will carry the press conference live from NPR with anchored coverage of the event. Anchors will include Health Correspondent Julie Rovner, National Security Correspondent Larry Abramson and White House Correspondent Ari Shapiro.
This will preempt the holiday programming we originally scheduled for today from 2-3 p.m.
