Gabby Giffords & Husband to Speak with Diane Sawyer Following Newtown Shooting

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, will speak exclusively to "ABC World News" anchor Diane Sawyer about an important new initiative they are launching. The interview will air January 8, 2013 on "World News with Diane Sawyer" - two years to the day after Giffords was shot in a Safeway parking lot in Tucson, Arizona. The interview will also be featured on "Good Morning America," "Nightline," as well as ABCNews.com, Newsmakers on Yahoo!, ABC News Radio and ABC's local affiliates.

Rep. Giffords was hosting a "Congress on Your Corner" meet-and-greet event for constituents in Tucson, Arizona the morning of January 8, 2011, when shots rang out. Six people were killed and many others injured, including Giffords. In the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, Giffords' husband, former Astronaut Mark Kelly, called on lawmakers and the President to "stand up and do what is right." "This time our response must consist of more than regret, sorrow and condolence... this can no longer wait," he said in a statement on Facebook.

Sawyer spoke with Giffords in her first television interview in November 2011, and with Mark Kelly just days after the shooting in January 2011.

"World News with Diane Sawyer" airs at 6:30 p.m., ET on the ABC Television Network. Michael Corn is the executive producer of the broadcast. Follow Diane Sawyer and the "World News" team online: @DianeSawyer; @ABCWorldNews; facebook.com/DianeSawyer; facebook.com/WorldNews.
