FOX News to Air Exclusive Interview with DUCK DYNASTY Family Members Tonight
Fox News Channel has announced that they will air an exclusive interview tonight with Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Korie Robertson. The segment will be broadcast during the network's All-American New Year (9PM - 12:30AM/ET).
The broadcast will mark the first time Robertson family members will appear on TV since A&E's reinstatement of family patriarch Phil Robertson, who recently created a controversy with his anti-gay remarks. Willie and Korie will share their opinion on the incident with FOX anchors Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, as well as reflect on 2013 and discuss the year ahead.
The controversy began earlier this month when Robertson was suspended from the reality series indefinitely by the A&E network in the wake of his anti-gay comments in the January issue of GQ. Said Robertson, "Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong... Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
Since that time, everyone from Charlie Sheen to Sarah Palin to the late night host circuit have weighed in on the controversy.
Season five of Duck Dynasty is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, with back-to-back episodes at 10:00 and 10:30PM ET/PT.
