Larry King Takes Talk Show To Russia Today

Former CNN talk show host Larry King is heading to the Russia-based cable news network, Russia Today. The network announced on Wednesday that he would take his new show, Politics with Larry King, to RT in June.

“Whether a president or an activist or a rock star was sitting across from him, Larry King never shied away from asking the tough questions, which makes him a terrific fit for our network,” said RT Editor In Chief Margarita Simonyan in a press release announcing the move.

King called his new program “a mold-breaking political talk show.”

King debuted his first post-CNN online talk program on Hulu in 2012. RT is a non-profit funded by the Russian federal government which broadcasts in over 100 countries.
