1 comment
ABC news has begun posting teasers from Robin Roberts' interviews with Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, the first such sitdown with two of the survivors from Ariel Castro's house of horrors. The full hourlong feature will air on ABC at 10 p.m. on April 28, the day after their book is released.


Originally posted 2/27/15: Cleveland kidnapping victims Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus have solidified plans to give their first TV interview in tandem with the release of their book, "Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland," which hits shelves at the end of April.

ABC news anchor Robin Roberts will conduct the interview, which is slated to air as a one-hour prime time special on April 28 at 10 p.m.

Smaller segments will be released earlier that day on "Good Morning America," and the following week on several other news outlets. 

It's been almost two years since the women were freed after being held for nearly a decade in Ariel Castro's House of Horrors here in Cleveland.

The third kidnapping victim, Michelle Knight, released a memoir of her own last year.
