TORONTO — Former CBC personality Evan Solomon has landed a new gig hosting a one-hour political talk show on SiriusXM Canada.
The satellite radio company says the show, called 'Everything Is Political: Campaign 2015 with Evan Solomon,' will premiere Thursday at 6 p.m. and will follow the run up to the federal election in October.
Solomon anchored CBC News Network's daily political series "Power & Politics" and CBC Radio's weekly "The House" until CBC cut ties with him in June.
His dismissal came after the Toronto Star alleged the 47-year-old took advantage of his position to broker lucrative art deals between a friend and wealthy interview subjects. Solomon has denied any wrongdoing.
SiriusXM says the show will air on Thursdays in August before airing daily on weekdays in September until Nov. 5.
