BuzzFeed will interview President Obama on Tuesday, Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith announced on Sunday.

"This will be our first interview with a sitting president of the United States," Smith said. " It’s a nice tribute to the work my colleagues have done to take this place from an ambitious, zany experiment to one of the most ambitious new news and media organizations in the world."

The interview is part of the White House's recent efforts to appeal to voters using new media. Last month, Obama fielded questions with three other popular new media figures: YouTube stars Hank Green, Bethany Mota and Glozell Green.
