Trayvon Martin’s Parents Begin To Make TV Rounds With Morning Show Appearances

The parents of Trayvon Martin, the teenager killed by George Zimmerman last year, are beginning to speak out publicly following Zimmerman’s acquittal last weekend.

This morning Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America”, NBC’s “Today” and “CBS This Morning”:

TVNewser hears that there was some behind the scenes drama with regard to the interviews. They were all to be pre-taped, but the parents stayed a bit long at ABC’s studios chatting with George Stephanopoulos. As a result, they didn’t get to the CBS Broadcast Center until 6:50, and weren’t able to leave for NBC until 6:59, which forced “Today” to scramble and shift segments to fill its A-block until they arrived.

Today, they will be appearing on a number of cable news programs, including MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” and CNN’s “AC360.”
