National radio host and Philly native Michael Smerconish got to talk to the president. He’s going to let you hear everything that was said this morning on WPHT 1210 radio.
Smerconish interviewed President Obama Thursday afternoon at the White House and the entire interview will be aired during his radio show this morning and from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and repeated from midnight to 2 a.m. The main topic of conversation: healthcare reform.
The Philadelphia lawyer-turned radio host was the first radio broadcaster to interview President Obama in the White House. The interview included telephone calls from listeners.
The radio host asked hard-hitting questions about Obama’s healthcare initiatives. Obama denied that he’s losing his nerve or confidence when it comes to passing his healthcare reform package.
The talk show host says he did not allow the White House to screen his questions, so the president's reactions cannot be scripted. “There are no ground rules," he said in a statement Wednesday
