The second “big get” interview in as many weeks has landed outside the broadcast networks’ news divisions, once the go-to place for most figures at the center of a controversy. Katie Couric will conduct the first on-camera interview with Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o and his parents since the tragic story of Te’o’s girlfriend was exposed as a fraud. (The athlete did an off-camera interview with ESPN on Friday). The interview will air Thursday on Couric’s syndicated talk show. Previews for the chat will air on ABC News platforms, Good Morning America, World News and Nightline. Earlier this week, disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong admitted to doping in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on her cable network OWN.
