The newest face of Kremlin TV
Veteran television host Larry King has joined Russia’s state-funded English language channel RT (formerly known as Russia Today) to host a series of political talk shows. King is the second high-publicity hire by RT in the past two years (Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had a brief stint as a host).
In an RT advertisement, King, wearing his signature suspenders, says that, in his show, Politics with Larry King, he would “rather ask questions to people in positions of power than speak on their behalf.” King previously moderated an RT debate of third-party candidates in the 2012 US presidential election, in order, the station said, to tackle “issues that the mainstream ignores.” The new show, as well as another show King hosts on Hulu, called Larry King Now, was at press time scheduled to begin airing on RT in June.
