(KCEN) -- Katie Couric has landed the first on-camera interview with Notre Dame football player Manti Te'o.
That's so he can explain how he got involved with a fake girlfriend.
Couric will sit down with Te'o later this week.
The interview will air Thursday on her syndicated program 'Katie' right here on KCEN.
Couric beat out a number of shows trying to land the first exclusive, including Oprah Winfrey.
Te'o was interviewed on the radio last Friday night for two and a half hours by ESPN.
