Fox news to interview Sarah Palin; husband Todd gets airtime too

September 12, 2008 |  2:31 pm

With three separate ABC News interviews behind her, the Republican Party's vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin now moves on to the next network, Fox News.

Her husband Todd, the United Steelworkers Union member, oil field worker, commercial fisherman and father of five, will also be interviewed separately, as the latest portion of the unfolding media frenzy over the political newcomer.

It's all part of a quick two-day visit back home that drew a large welcoming crowd.

The 44-year-old Alaska governor saw her son, Track, off to Iraq duty with the Army Thursday, although in her speech to the Alaska unit she did not mention her son specifically. (See news video below.)

The 19-year-old enlisted in the service exactly one year ago on Sept. 11. After her final ABC interview with Charles Gibson today, Palin returns to the campaign trail solo Saturday with an afternoon rally in Carson City, Nev.

Our blogging buddy Matea Gold has the new TV interview details as usual on the Show Tracker blog.
