Fox News Secures Interview With Duggar Parents

Fox News on June 5 will air an interview with the parents of Josh Duggar, controverisal star of TLC reality series 19 Kids And Counting, the network said Saturday.

The interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will air as part of Fox News' The Kelly File hosted by Megyn Kelly, who will speak with the parents about their son's molestation allegations and the controversy surrounding their family.

TLC late last month pulled 19 Kids And Counting off the air amid revelations that the conservative family’s eldest son Josh molested several girls as a young teen.

The interview will take place June 3 at the Duggar home in Arkansas, according to Fox.
