NEW YORK -- President Barack Obama will appear Sunday for an exclusive interview on "Meet the Press," as fiscal cliff negotiations come down to the wire before the Dec. 31 deadline.

Obama didn't sit for interviews on any of the Sunday public affairs shows while running for reelection in 2012. He last made the Sunday show rounds when pushing for health care reform in Sept. 2009.

"Meet the Press" host David Gregory, who sparked controversy and prompted a D.C. police investigation after holding up an empty gun magazine during last Sunday's interview with National Rifle Association executive Wayne LaPierre, will return from vacation to conduct the interview with the president. NBC News has not commented on the police investigation.

Obama's Sunday appearance will be his 11th on "Meet the Press" and second as president.
