ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos landed the highly-prized first television interview with Officer Darren Wilson who broke his silence to defend shooting Michael Brown.
Wilson sat down with the ‘Good Morning America’ co-host, less than 24 hours after a grand jury decided not to indict the 28-year-old officer in the death of Brown this summer.
In a preview on Tuesday, Stephanopoulos told viewers that he spent more than an hour with Wilson in a ‘secret location.’
In television terms, the Wilson interview was one of the biggest ‘wins’ of the year – the officers’s low-profile since the shooting means every media organization covering the high-profile story was eager to speak to him.
The network interrupted its afternoon programming on Wednesday for Stephanopoulos to talk about the interview.
