Amanda Knox’s appeals trial in the murder case of Meredith Kercher has garnered enormous media attention, with many networks vying for a first interview. Her most recent offer – a $10,000 hosting job at a local Seattle radio station.
MOViN 92.5, in Seattle, Wash., invited Knox to host their “Brooke & Jubal In The Morning” show for one week. The 24-year-old would be compensated $10,000 KIROTV wrote.
"We believed in Amanda Knox all along and have been closely following the case," a statement from KQMV read.
"We are extremely happy for Amanda and her family and we not only welcome her back home to Seattle, but we also wanted to help her family with legal bills so we are offering her a job to be on the morning show with Brooke & Jubal for $10,000 dollars."
There has been no word as to whether Knox will accept the proposition.
Gogerty Marriott, a leading Seattle PR firm, has been hired to handle the bids for Amanda Knox’s exclusive interview, the Telegraph has reported.
ABC’s Diane Sawyer and Elizabeth Vargas, anchors for “World News” and “20/20,” respectively, are said to be the frontrunners in the interview “chase.”
"She has not signed up to anyone. Offers have come in but the family has been concentrating on the appeal,” a close family friend told the Telegraph.
“The family has asked for space and some time to readjust. In time Amanda will consider interviews. She wants to get back to a sense of normal life,” the source added.
Amanda Knox touched American soil for the first time in four years Tuesday, following her release from an Italian prison for the death of Meredith Kercher.
An appeals court acquitted the 24-year-old Monday of murdering her British roommate, who was killed during a drug-influenced sex game that went awry. A jury of six, along with two judges, overturned Knox’s 26-year jail sentence for the 2007 murder.
