President Obama will appear on "60 Minutes" this Sunday for an interview with Steve Kroft, the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reports.

Kroft was the first interviewer Obama spoke to following his November election victory.

Before appearing on "60 Minutes," Obama will visit "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Thursday.

This will be the second big newsmaker interview in as many weeks for the CBS newsmagazine. Last week it scored a rare sit-down with Fed Chair Ben Bernanke.
