Larry King Teams With Popular Online Video Site, Debuts New Show NY Times
Larry King is debuting his new talk show online, The New York Times’ Media Decoder reports, with his premiere already up on the popular online-streaming site Hulu.
"Larry King Now" has posted its first interview, which is with Seth MacFarlane. Hulu will post episodes with Meghan McCain and Matthew McConaughey later this week, according to the story.
By adding "Larry King Now," Hulu will have a four-day-a-week talk show, helping the site toward its goal of including more original shows, the piece notes. The half-hour show will be posted Monday though Thursday.
The show comes to Hulu in part through Carlos Slim Helu's Ora TV, a startup that has been relatively quiet since it was announced in March, the piece points out. The agreement "is a recognition that new online networks need outside help to reach viewers," according to the article.
