‘Duck Dynasty’ couple to appear live from Steamboat on Fox News
December 31, 2013
New York — “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson will talk about his outspoken father as he helps Fox News Channel ring in the new year.
The network said Robertson and wife Korie will be guests on the “All-American New Year” special Fox News is airing Tuesday night.
The couple will appear live from Steamboat Springs to discuss the recent brief suspension of “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson from the hit A&E reality series. His nine-day removal resulted from anti-gay comments Robertson made in GQ magazine. A firestorm was set off among his legions of defenders who felt he was being censored by the network.
A&E reinstated him last Friday.
The Fox News special will be hosted by Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Robertson is friends with Adam, Andy and Jeff LaRoche and has been one of the celebrities involved with the brothers’ new Steamboat restaurant, E3 Chophouse.
