One of President Obama's meetings last week was with television talk show host Steve Harvey.
Harvey, also a comedian and host of the game show Family Feud, met with Obama at the White House on Friday; the interview airs next Friday on Harvey's daytime television show.
"Harvey speaks with President Obama about family, fatherhood and his plans for the holidays," said a statement from the program.
In a written statement, Harvey said: "Sitting down with the President is something I've always dreamt of doing, and I am honored to have the opportunity. I'm grateful to President Obama for welcoming me and I'm thrilled to share this experience with all my viewers."
