NBC’s Today Show has landed the first on-air interview with Vice News reporter Simon Ostrovsky since his release from a four-day detainment in Ukraine by pro-Russian forces. The American correspondent was held in the eastern Ukraine city of Slovyansk during his time in captivity. He’d been covering Russia’s invasion of Crimea in video dispatches for Vice since March. Ostrovsky will sit down with Today‘s Savannah Guthrie live Monday, April 28 with an additional interview airing that night on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.
