Good News for Larry King Fans

Larry King, who’s now 78, recently announced that his talk show will resume this summer on the new digital network Ora.TV.  The show, “Larry King Now,” will mark the startup of the network financed by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.

According to an Associated Press (AP) story, executives originally intended to launch in the fall.  But King said he wanted to “get into the political mix” in time for this summer’s Democratic and Republican national conventions to name presidential nominees.

The show’s format will be similar to “Larry King Live,” which aired on CNN for 25 years.  While his prior show was an hour in length and had a 9 p.m. start time, the new show will be around 30 minutes long, with fresh episodes posted online around 5 or 6 p.m.

To lay the groundwork for King’s return, Ora.TV is making him available in ventures where younger audiences more inclined to watch a digital network will see him. For example, King has a new skit that will be made available on the website Funny or Die.

So who will be King’s first guest?  He wouldn’t pinpoint anyone — but apparently he’s aiming for President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.

Here’s the AP article for those who would like to read more about King’s show.
