The sit-down focuses on the “Better Make Room” campaign and Obama’s “Reach Higher” initiative, an effort to inspire every student in America to take charge of the future by continuing their education beyond high school. The interview, done Wednesday in the East Room of the White House, airs January 26.

“We were honored and excited to bring our show to Washington, D.C., to interview First Lady Michelle Obama,” said Rachel Miskowiec, executive producer syndicated daytime talker The Real. “The ‘Better Make Room’ campaign empowers students to pursue a ‘better’ tomorrow by taking charge of their future, which is exactly the kind of thing our hosts and viewers are passionate about.”
