AMW SPECIAL EDITION: FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA JOINS JOHN WALSH FOR "AMERICA'S MOST WANTED'S" MILESTONE 1000TH EPISODE SATURDAY, MARCH 6, ON FOX

March 3, 2010, Washington, D.C. - President Barack Obama will make a special appearance on AMERICA'S MOST WANTED's milestone 1000th episode, airing this Saturday, March 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

John Walsh, host of AMW since the show's inception 22 years ago, sits down with President Obama to discuss some of the administration's crime-fighting initiatives and the impact that the show has had on thousands of victims and millions of people in its 22 years and 1000 episodes on the air. The President also discusses his administration's support of state and local law enforcement, including the Recovery Act's $4 billion that was allocated for state and local agencies. Additionally, President Obama talks to Walsh about his administration's initiatives to go after and prosecute "white collar" criminals - crimes that John Walsh and AMW have also focused on recently.

As a long-time advocate for America's children - since his 6-year-old son Adam was abducted and murdered in 1981 - Walsh has fought hard for countless pieces of victim and child protection legislation, and most recently, the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which was signed into law in 2006 on the anniversary of Adam Walsh's abduction and murder. Walsh tells President Obama about the need for Congress to fund this act that created a national sex-offender registry to go after the estimated 100,000 convicted sex offenders who are in non-compliance and have disappeared. President Obama tells John Walsh that his administration will work to have the act funded.

To date, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED has helped capture more than 1100 fugitives, including 17 from the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list. The series has also reunited 43 missing children with their families, which Walsh says is his "proudest achievement."

Tune in for the entire interview Saturday, March 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The series is produced by STF Productions, Inc. John Walsh is host and executive producer and Steve Katz is co-executive producer.
