New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will sit down Thursday for his first media interview since his lengthy January news conference.

The interview will appear on ABC's "World News with Diane Sawyer" and will also feature Christie's wife, Mary Pat. The program airs at 6:30 p.m. Eastern.

In the conversation, Christie will address a soon-to-be-released report on the lane closures in Fort Lee, N.J. that was ordered by the governor himself. A New York Times report earlier this week said the report showed Christie had no involvement in the what was apparently a politically motivated plot.

The interview will take place in the Christies' home.
