Former CNN stalwart Larry King, who recently vacated his seat as the cable news channel’s 9 p.m. host, will be making a return to television, reports TVNewser.com. King has been tapped to interview Tavis Smiley on PBS this week.
The interview will air Thursday and Friday on "The Tavis Smiley Show." Smiley is celebrating 20 years as a broadcaster, which will be the subject of the King interviews.
In a statement, Smiley said, “Larry King was an inspiration for me when I started my own late-night talk show eight years ago. One of the highlights of my broadcast career was the opportunity to periodically guest host for Larry King on CNN. It is an honor to now have him interview me on my program. It will be two great nights of conversation as we reflect on our combined 70+ years of broadcasting experience.”
