NBC News' Chuck Todd will interview President Barack Obama on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

The exclusive interview, which marks Todd's debut as permanent moderator of "Meet the Press," will cover the threat of ISIS, U.S. relations with Russia and Ukraine, the Ebola virus outbreak, the coming midterm elections and other news of the day, NBC News said Thursday.

Todd said last Sunday on the program that he hoped to reduce Americans' cynicism toward politics and politicians.

"The art of politics is a very important part of how the world governs itself, how America governs itself," he said. "If you have people who know how to practice the art of politics, the democracy gets stronger, the world gets safer, and that's when you realize politics is a good thing."
