Larry King To Anchor Live Political Coverage On YouTube During Conventions, Debates, Election Night

Guess what? Former CNN host Larry King will be anchoring live election coverage this year, (sort of) competing with his old friends at CNN. King will be anchoring coverage on YouTube the last two nights of both the RNC and DNC, as well as following the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates later this year. On election night, he will also be anchoring a live special online.

King detailed the plans in an interview with Shira Lazar on her program “What’s Trending?”

“Politics is something I’ve missed doing, I did a lot of at CNN, I did a lot of it before CNN, I have been doing this a long time,” King said. “We won’t be screaming at you, the host will not have opinions, he will have questions.”
