American broadcaster Larry King back on the airwaves... on a Russian channel
Larry King, the veteran American broadcaster, is to host a political talk show on Russia Today, the Kremlin-funded television channel.
Mr King, 79, who left CNN in 2010 after 25 years at the network, will present “Politics with Larry King” from next month. The channel claims that the programme will be a “mould-breaking political talk show”.
“I have always been passionate about government and issues that impact the public, and I’m thrilled at the opportunity to talk politics with some of the most influential people in Washington and around the country,” said Mr King in a statement.
It seems unlikely that he will interview any Russian political figures, and instead will focus on US politicians.
