President Barack Obama will appear on "60 Minutes" in an interview with Steve Kroft to be broadcast Sunday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Steve Kroft interviewed the president on Tuesday in Kansas after he delivered an economic speech in the small town of Osawatomie. President Obama will talk to Kroft again tomorrow at the White House for Sunday's report.

The interviews focus on a wide range of critical topics, including the president's performance, the U.S. economy and unemployment, and the budget woes in Washington. It will be the first extended interview the president has granted since the bi-partisan Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction or "Super Committee," failed last month to reach a consensus on massive cuts to the U.S. budget.
