George Zimmerman to appear on Hannity show tonight
George Zimmerman will appear on The Sean Hannity Show tonight for a full hour in his first media interview on the killing of Trayvon Martin, TVNewser reports.
The Fox News show airs at 9 p.m. ET.
The Florida neighborhood watch volunteer is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon in a gated community in Sanford on Feb. 26.
He told police he shot the 17-year-old in self-defense after the teen repeatedly knocked his head to the ground.
Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, will also appear on the show and plans to address rumors about Zimmerman’s bail and finances.
This isn’t the first time Zimmerman has spoken to the Fox News talks show host. In April, before he was charged and arrested, Zimmerman called Hannity and engaged in an off-the-record conversation, TVNewser reports.
Hannity said at the time that he had agreed not to discuss what they talked about.
A Fox News Channel spokesperson batted down speculation that Hannity had paid for tonight’s interview, telling TVNewserthat Fox News host “has never offered to pay any legal fees or any fee associated with George Zimmerman.”
