Diane Sawyer To Interview Gabrielle Giffords On Two-Year Anniversary Of Tucson Shooting

Diane Sawyer will interview former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly on the two-year anniversary of the horrific Tucson shooting, ABC News announced on Sunday.

The exclusive interview will air on January 8, 2013 on "World News with Diane Sawyer," just two years after gunman Jared Loughner shot Giffords in the head, severely wounding the congresswoman and killing six individuals.

Sawyer interviewed Kelly shortly after the January 2011 shooting. She also sat down with Giffords in her first television interview in November 2011. Following the aftermath of the horrific mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month, Giffords met with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to discuss gun control. She also visited Newtown, Conn.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article mistakenly indicated that the interview will take place on January 8, 2012.
