WASHINGTON, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- President Obama is scheduled to discuss the fiscal cliff in his first Sunday show interview in more than three years, CNN reported.

Obama is scheduled for an interview Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" with host David Gregory.

His last Sunday talk show appearance was in September 2009 when he appeared on five shows to discuss his affordable healthcare law.

The Sunday shows have a reputation for pressing politicians on tough questions, and the longer format allows for more in-depth interviews, CNN said. Most of Obama's re-election interviews were on local television and radio stations.

The president will no doubt be discussing the impending fiscal cliff, about which he said Friday he is "modestly optimistic that an agreement can be achieved," the news broadcaster said.
