Award-winning interviewer Larry King will host a mold-breaking political talk show on RT from next month, speaking to both leading establishment figures, and those who are not afraid to go against the grain.
“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,” says King.
King’s career has spanned 56 years and more than 50,000 interviews, but he says the show will break new ground. The veteran broadcaster will not shy away from causing controversy, or using his authority to give a chance to hear voices other media ignore.
As longtime readers may know, we’re not so friendly on our opinions regarding the offerings of the Russian-owned RT. But on the other hand, Ora TV, which King co-founded after leaving CNN, has been interesting to keep an eye on, particularly the Newsbreaker platform they’ve launched, which has quickly grown in prominence on Twitter. But that said … it’s gonna be weird to see Larry King on the same channel that’s known for stuff like this.
