Larry King to Guest-Host ESPN's Olbermann
Former CNN host Larry King will guest-host ESPN's Olbermann next week while Keith Olbermann takes a leave of absence to host TBS's coverage of the MLB playoffs.
King will guest-host ESPN2’s show from October 1-3 and he is also scheduled to make a guest appearance on Olbermann this Friday, September 27.
“Larry is so popular and well-known to television viewers but being able to bring them his unique perspective on sports topics is a new twist and we’re excited to have him," Norby Williamson, an ESPN executive said.
According to ESPN, "following King, Jeremy Schaap will guest host the program on October 8-10, followed by Colin Cowherd who will guest host from October 15-17. Olbermann will leave the show on September 30 and return on October 21."
After being replaced by Piers Morgan at CNN, King now has a show on Russia Today, which is viewed as a propaganda machine for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
