The interview, scheduled to be taped on Wednesday, will touch on topics including his administration's accomplishments, jobs, the economy, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and family life inside the White House.

Obama last appeared on the ABC program in March 2008, while he was a U.S. senator. He also was a featured guest in November 2004, when promoting his book, "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance." His wife, Michelle Obama, was a featured guest co-host in June 2008.

Obama's appearance is part of the show's continuing "Red, White & View" campaign, which features political guests and discussions. Barbara Walters, creator/executive producer and co-host of "The View" will make an in-studio appearance to speak with Obama. Walters underwent heart valve replacement surgery in May.
