LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A George Zimmerman Sean Hannity interview on FOX NEWS tonight (start time 9 PM EST) will allow not just Zimmerman but also Hannity to address controversial allegations that have surfaced in recent days. FOX has previously told news that Hannity has not donating money to George Zimmerman’s legal defense. Zimmerman, in turn, is set to address controversial allegations about his benefactors and bail.
The George Zimmerman Sean Hannity will air during a one-hour segment of “Hannity” tonight, FOX tells news moments ago. It will be Zimmerman’s first TV news interview since the February 26, 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin.
Jailhouse phone calls released this week featured George Zimmerman referring to a benefactor by the names of “SH”. Sean Hannity, however, has denied those initials as referring to him. In a news statement, FOX said “Sean Hannity has never offered to pay any legal fees or any fee associated with George Zimmerman.”
But before the initials, Hannity was alleged to have had conversations with Zimmerman in April 2012. Those purported conversations happened on the eve of Zimmerman’s previous attorneys’ withdrawing from the case.
In a news statement today, FOX says that allegations about Zimmerman’s funds and bond hearing pleadings will be addressed during the telecast. “Zimmerman will open up about what happened the night of Trayvon Martin’s death and his experience in the aftermath of the fatal shooting. Additionally, Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara will answer questions regarding his client’s case and rumors circulating about the bail donations and hidden money.”
