WASHINGTON Jan 14 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is due to hold a news conference at 11:15 a.m. (1615 GMT), the White House said on Monday in a surprise announcement.
Obama's last full-scale news conference was on Nov. 14, shortly after he won re-election. He took questions from the media last week after a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
