NPR's Linda Wertheimer will host the coverage, and she'll be joined by Senior Editor Ron Elving. President-elect Obama is expected to talk about the economy. The November unemployment numbers come out in the morning and he will meet with his economic advisors prior to the press conference. It’s unprecedented for a President-elect to call a press conference before he takes office.
