NEW YORK (AP) - "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson will talk about his outspoken father as he helps Fox News Channel ring in the new year.

The network says Robertson and wife, Korie, will be guests on the "All-American New Year" special Fox News is airing Tuesday night.

The couple will appear live from Steamboat Springs, Colo., to discuss the recent brief suspension of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson from the hit A&E reality series. His nine-day removal resulted from anti-gay comments Robertson made in GQ magazine. A firestorm was set off among his legions of defenders who felt he was being censored by the network.

A&E reinstated him last Friday.

The Fox News special will be hosted by Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Eastern time.
