Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah scheduled for Jan. 17

Tom Pennington

It will be his first public interview since being banned from cycling.

Lance Armstrong is scheduled to give a "tell-all" interview to Oprah Winfrey, according to Tom Kludt of Talking Points Memo.

The interview will air at 9 p.m. ET on Jan. 17 on the Oprah Winfrey Network and Oprah.com. It will be his first interview since he received a lifetime ban from the International Cycling Union.

Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles in October 2012.

In a report in the New York Times late last week, Armstrong is considering "publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career."

Ever since Armstrong has been accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs, he has denied the allegations publicly.

In the wake of the allegations, Armstrong stepped down as the chairman of his Livestrong charity, but he remained a member on the board. At the same time, Nike dropped him as one of its endorsers, citing "insurmountable evidence" that he has doped and "misled Nike for more than a decade."
