Telephone conversations of Subway pitchman turned alleged child sex offender Jared Fogle will be aired on US television this week.

Florida journalist Rochelle Herman-Walrond is due to appear on the Dr Phil talk show and discuss the conversations she privately orchestrated and recorded to expose the 38-year-old.

The FBI, according to reports, has also kept tabs on Mr Fogle, who in the conversations allegedly explains what having sex with minors is like.

The father made a multi-million dollar fortune selling himself as a Subway weight loss success story in the early 2000s.

It is understood he is under home detention during court proceedings with a sentence due around November 19.

Mr Fogle in August asked a federal judge to accept a guilty plea deal to charges of child pornography and travelling for illicit paid sex with minors.

Under the deal, Mr Fogle would serve between five and 12 years in prison, pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims, register as a sex offender and meet other conditions.

According to charges, Rusell Taylor, head of the Jared Foundation set-up to combat child obesity, secretly taped 12 minors while they changed clothes and showered at his home, including two who were as young as 13 or 14. He shared the images with Mr Fogle, who knew they showed minors, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors in August said Mr Fogle also received commercial child pornography from Mr Taylor, viewed it and failed to report it. He stored explicit images of children as young as six, prosecutors said.

Mr Fogle travelled to New York City at least twice between 2010 and 2013 seeking sex with minors, and paid for sex acts with a girl he knew to be 17 years old and another girl younger than 18.

He told the first girl he would "make it worth her while" if she could find him another minor to have sex with, "the younger the girl, the better," according to the indictment.

Prosecutors said he repeatedly asked prostitutes and others to find him 14 and 15 year olds for sex.

Police and prosecutors said in a news conference in August that the investigation of Mr Taylor and Mr Fogle started after a tip from a private citizen.
