No reason for the cancellation was immediately given, The Hill reports.
Pence was to be interviewed by PBS correspondent Miles O'Brien was at Johnson Space Center in Houston, according to the Hill.
The interview also was promoted on the air during Tuesday's broadcast. "News Hour" is hosted by Judy Woodruff.
The cancellation came shortly after the Senate Intelligence Committee posted an opening statement that former FBI Director James Comey plans to deliver in a public hearing before the panel.
In the seven-page remarks, Comey said that Trump asked for his loyalty and to end the FBI's investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's alleged Russia ties.
