NEW YORK — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is talking with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly for a special airing next month.

The will be the first time Trump has been interviewed by Kelly since the contentious August presidential debate.

The interview will be part of “Megyn Kelly Presents,” a special airing May 17 at 7 p.m. on FOX31 Denver.

“Mr. Trump and I sat down together for a meeting earlier this month at my request,” Kelly said. “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.”

In describing the special, Fox says “For the first time ever, 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. 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.”
