The Alyona Show Will Come to a Close This Week

Yesterday we reported that RT’s Alyona Minkovski would be joining HuffPost’s fledgling video network HuffPost Live as a producer and host. What we didn’t know is if she’d be bringing her popular online news show The Alyona Show with her. Well, we have an answer for you: no. As of the close of this week, the DC-based Alyona Show will be put to rest as its host heads to LA to start work for HuffPost Live.

“She’s working on something completely new,” says HuffPost spokesperson Tiffany Guarnaccia. “She’ll be 100% on HuffPost Live, which will reflect the all-encompassing tastes of the Huffington Post itself.”

We here at FishbowlLA were big fans of The Alyona Show, in part for her willingness to have edgy guests like Mark Ames and Yasha Levine of The eXiled on. Here’s hoping she’ll continue to showcase great alternative voices at HuffPost Live.
