The Ticker: King, ’60 Minutes,’ 2016

  • Former CNN anchor and current RT host Larry King is profiled by Time as he guest-hosts ESPN2′s “Olbermann.” “I can’t f–kin’ believe I’m gonna be f–kin’ 80,“ King quips.

  • A new Pew report suggests that 2016 coverage is already off to a blazing start… more than three years before voters go the polls. The state of coverage is well beyond what we saw in 2009 and 2005.

Larry King To Guest-Host Keith Olbermann’s ESPN2 Show

KingOlbFormer CNN host Larry King will be able to add yet another line on his resume next month: ESPN host. King will be filling in for Keith Olbermann on his 11 PM show on ESPN 2 next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Olbermann will be covering the Major League Baseball playoffs for TBS during that time. King will be a guest on Friday’s edition of the program as well.

“I am a great admirer of Keith Olbermann who I think is the quintessential sports host,” said King in a statement. “Sports have always been my avocation – they’re part of my being.  Having the chance to come back to my hometown of New York and host Keith’s show for several days is a terrific joy for me and a return to my first love.”

Other guest-hosts during Olbermann’s absence will include Jeremy Schaap and Colin Cowherd.

King is a noted sports fan, particularly of baseball, which will surely be one of the big sports stories of the day when he guest-hosts. After he left CNN, King pitched MLB Network on a new show, where he could serve as “Bob Costas West.”

The number one pick is a crowd-pleaser.

Between this and his recent partnership with Snoop Lion, King is quickly becoming as known in the comedy world as he is in the news world.
