Conrad Black TV Show: Former Media Baron Gets Talk Show On ZoomerMedia


Remember, not too long ago, when Conrad Blackexploded at a British journalist for asking too many hard-hitting questions?

Seems like that was just a taste of what's to come -- except this time, Lord Black will be sitting on the other side of the interview. That's right, disgraced media mogul Conrad Black is slated to have his own TV talk show, courtesy of Moses Znaimer's ZoomerMedia.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the talk show will feature Black debating current hot-button topics, not unlike the Piers Morgan segment on CNN. Some examples of issues to be discussed include gun control, the U.S. and Canadian judicial systems and prison sentences.

Co-hosted by former head of CBC Radio executive Denise Donlon, the show is also said to feature a round-table discussion segment.

Black was released from a Florida prison in mid-2012 after serving time for obstruction and fraud charges, and currently resides in Toronto with his wife, Barbara Amiel.
