KNDO.com will be streaming live President-elect Barack Obama's first news conference

KNDU is preparing to stream President-elect Barack Obama's first new conference live on our web site at www.KNDO.com

Obama will be speaking at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, following a meeting with his transition economic advisory board in Chicago.

The meeting in Chicago will include top advisers who worked with Obama on the campaign and comes as the president elect works on putting together his cabinet following his election on Tuesday.

With the financial markets falling sharply and more dismal economic news expected for Friday, Obama is likely to want to move forward quickly on naming his economic team.

Obama's aides could not say if any major announcements or appointments would be made at the news conference.

Obama and his wife, Michelle, will also travel to Washington early next week to meet President George W. Bush at the White House.

Obama has spoken to Bush, and Michelle Obama spoke on Wednesday to Laura Bush about the role of the first lady and asked her for guidance in preparing.
