Phil Robertson scandal: Hunt Channel and Pursuit Channel eager to air Duck Dynasty
At least two networks are eager to air Duck Dynasty reality show if A&E decides to ax the hugely popular reality show, TMZ reported.
Merrill Sport, owner of the Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel told the website that he’d be thrilled to pick up the show.
“We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech,” he said.
“…A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don’t like the programming, they need to either let [Duck Dynasty] go or shut up and pay them.”
“A&E is too scripted. [Hunt Channel] would let the personalities flow.”
Rusty Faulk, CEO of the Pursuit Channel is also willing to air Duck Dynasty telling TMZ that the channel doesn’t, “censor our personalities.”
However, the Robertson family’s A&E contract precludes the clan from doing another show for a certain period of time.
