Sources at CBS confirmed to nydailynews.com, Obama reached out to Logan, 39, but did not reveal specifics on what he discussed with the veteran war-zone correspondent.
Logan was released from a hospital Tuesday night, and was recovering at home in Washington with her husband and their two children, network sources said.
CBS went public with news of the attack on Logan after receiving a call from the National Enquirer, a supermarket tabloid that was working on the story.
Logan was set upon by a mob of more than 200 Friday as she and her crew covered the downfall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Logan was separated from her camera crew, "surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating," CBS said in the statement.
A group of women and 20 Egyptian soldiers came to her rescue and she was flown out of the country on Saturday.
In an interview with Esquire.com before she was assaulted, Logan, who hails from South Africa, revealed that Egyptian authorities had detained her and her crew at gunpoint and accused her of being an Israeli spy.
National Press Club, the world's leading professional organization for journalists, urged Egyptian authorities Wednesday to "aggressively investigate" the attack and to bring those responsible to justice.
Stunned news colleagues of Logan, who is also a CBS "60 Minutes" correspondent, showered her with well-wishes and expressed outrage over her ordeal.
