WASHINGTON - ABC's Diane Sawyer will get the first one-on-one television interview with Hillary Rodham Clinton surrounding the June release of the former secretary of state's new book, "Hard Choices."

The network said Tuesday the Clinton interview will air during a primetime special airing on June 9. ABC said Robin Roberts will conduct the first live interview with Clinton the following day on "Good Morning America."

Clinton's book chronicling her time at the State Department will be released June 10 and comes as the former first lady and New York senator is considering another presidential campaign. The first interviews surrounding Clinton's book release have been highly coveted by television networks because of the potential for a large viewing audience.

Early polls show Clinton as the leading Democratic contender for the White House and her future plans have been widely anticipated by supporters who have encouraged her to try to become the nation's first female president.

Publisher Simon & Schuster has said the new book will offer an inside account of the "crises, choices and challenges" Clinton faced as secretary of state.

The former first lady has been active on the speaking circuit since departing the Obama administration and promoted policy issues through her family's philanthropic foundation.
