Mitt Romney To Appear On 'Meet The Press' Sunday, September 9

Mitt Romney will go on "Meet the Press" this Sunday, marking his first appearance on the show in nearly three years.

Host David Gregory will travel to New Hampshire to sit down with Romney, who will be campaigning in the swing state. Gregory and "Meet the Press" executive producer Betsy Fischer Martin tweeted the news on Wednesday.

Since embarking on his 2012 campaign, Romney has limited his interviews to Fox News and "Fox News Sunday." One notable exception was his appearance on CBS News' "Face the Nation" in June. Bob Schieffer told The Huffington Post that he had been trying to book the candidate every week.

Prior to appearing on "Fox News Sunday" in December 2011, Romney stayed off the Sunday shows for twenty consecutive months. He last appeared on "Meet the Press" on December 13, 2009. President Obama has also stayed away from "Meet the Press" for almost three years.
