A television executive says the couple who crashed President Barack Obama’s first state dinner is offering to talk to broadcast networks about it for a payment of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the network does not publicly discuss bookings, told The Associated Press that representatives for Michaele and Tareq Salahi contacted networks to urge them to “get their bids in” for an interview. The executive says the Virginia couple was looking for a payment in the mid-six figures range.
