'Larry King Now' talk show debuts on Hulu [View all]

Source: LA Times

Larry King intends to prove that he's not too old to break into a new medium: the Internet.

The 78-year-old broadcaster came out of retirement Monday to debut "Larry King Now," a new 30-minute talk show available on the popular online video service Hulu.

The Internet production marks King's return to news and entertainment after his long-running CNN series,"Larry King Live," ended in December 2010 after 25 years and nearly 7,000 shows. Unlike his hourlong call-in cable program, a nightly fixture, new shows are scheduled to be posted online Monday through Thursday about 3 p.m. Pacific time. And instead of fielding phone calls, King will take questions from the audience via Twitter.

The show is being produced by Ora TV (Ora means "now" in Italian), a newly launched digital venture financed by Mexican telecommunications billionaire Carlos Slim Helú. Slim had been a guest on King's CNN program, and the two began discussing the new enterprise more than a year ago. King is a co-founder of Ora TV.
