This week's presidential radio address will be delivered by the mother of a victim of the Newtown massacre, the AP reports.
"The White House says the mother of a Newtown shooting victim will deliver the weekly presidential radio and Internet address," reports the AP.
"President Barack Obama typically gives the talk, focusing on a topic that's in the news or a policy the White House is pushing.
"This week, Obama has asked Francine Wheeler to deliver the address instead. Wheeler and her husband, David, lost their 6-year-old son Ben in the December schoolhouse shooting in Newtown, Conn."
The families of victims have been in Washington pushing for gun control.
