Megyn Kelly will interview Donald Trump on Fox TV special

Fox News host Megyn Kelly will interview Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a Fox TV special to air next month.

The GOP presidential front-runner will be a guest on "Megyn Kelly Presents," a prime-time special airing May 17 on Fox TV. Extended portions of the sit-down interview will also appear on "The Kelly File" on Fox News Channel beginning on May 18.

The interview, which will take place in New York, marks the first sit-down between the two since the August 2015 presidential debate on Fox News Channel.

Kelly will explore how events unfolded with Trump after the August debate as one of the most prominent voices covering the 2016 presidential campaign of the front-runner, according to a statement from Fox News.

She will also examine Trump’s successful campaign for the White House to date and his role in one of the most historic presidential runs in modern times.

"Mr. Trump and I sat down together for a meeting earlier this month at my request. He was gracious with his time and I asked him to consider an interview. I am happy to announce he has agreed, and I look forward to a fascinating exchange — our first sit-down interview together in nearly a year,” Kelly said in a statement announcing the upcoming interview.

In addition to the Trump interview, “Megyn Kelly Presents” will feature a wide variety of notable guests from the entertainment world and other spheres of human interest to be interviewed by Kelly. The full list of guests will be announced at a later date.

FOX News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes is the show’s senior executive producer, while broadcast veteran Bill Geddie serves as the executive producer.
