LOS ANGELES - Gabrielle Giffords, the Arizona congresswoman who survived an assassination attempt in January, will give her first television interview since the shooting to ABC journalist Diane Sawyer in November, ABC News said on Monday.
Giffords and her astronaut husband Mark Kelly will talk about her recovery from a near-fatal shot to the head in a TV special to be broadcast on November 14.
The interview will be aired in conjunction with the release on Nov. 15 of a memoir by the couple called "Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope."
Giffords, 41, has made few public appearances since being shot by a gunman while holding a political event in Tucson, Arizona on January 8. Six people were killed and another 12 were wounded in the shooting.
