Television networks are jockeying to secure the first TV interview with Jaycee Dugard, the woman who was kidnapped at age 11 and held captive for 18 years by a sexual predator, reports the New York Post.
With Dugard, now 31, publishing a memoir in mid-July, her publicist has scheduled meetings with TV networks starting next week, the story says. The final choice of an interviewer is up to Dugard, her publicist says.
Among those vying for the interview are Diane Sawyer, Tom Brokaw, Anderson Cooper and perhaps Katie Couric, the article notes. It hasn’t been decided whether Dugard will do more than one interview, but her children, fathered by her kidnapper, are off limits, the story says.
