J.K. Rowling, the author of the "Harry Potter" children’s book series, has lined up her first U.S. television interview to promote her new book, reports the New York Post.
Rowling will be interviewed about the book — which is an adult novel — by ABC’s Cynthia McFadden, the story reports. The interview will be featured on "Good Morning America," "World News with Diane Sawyer" and "Nightline" on Wednesday, Sept. 26.
A second part of the interview will air the following day on "Good Morning America."
Rowling has sold more than 450 million books, the story notes. The interview represents a coup for ABC News and "Good Morning America," which has been on a roll in its ratings battle with NBC’s “Today” show. “GMA” beat "Today" by almost 800,000 total viewers last week, the piece notes.
