Barack Obama on America's Most Wanted 1000th Episode

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.

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."
