Media mogul Oprah Winfrey landed First Lady Michelle Obama’s final White House interview, according to an announcement made by CBS and OWN Network on Monday, POLITICO reports.

First Lady Michelle Obama Says Farewell to the White House — An Oprah Winfrey Special, will be filmed in the First Family’s private residence and air on CBS December 19 at 8 p.m EST. OWN will re-air the special on Dec. 21 at 9 p.m EST.

Winfrey will serve as executive producer along with OWN Studios and Tara Montgomery, OWN’s Creative Executive Vice President of Programming, Production & Development.

Winfrey, a close friend and supporter of the Obamas, has interviewed the First Couple on numerous occasions. This past June, Winfrey and the First Lady carried out a thorough discussion at the White House’s United State of Women Summit.

It’s speculated that the interview will focus on FLOTUS’ 8-year-impact and her future plans once the family leaves the White House on January 20.

The First Couple made a commitment to work with underprivileged youth under President Obama’s initiative, My Brother’s Keeper, and will also continue Michelle Obama’s impassioned campaign to expand education for girls.
