Eliot Spitzer is soliciting... viewers.
The former New York governor will co-host a nightly roundtable discussion program on CNN set to debut this fall, the network announced Wednesday.
Spitzer, who resigned amid a prostitution scandal two years ago, will co-host alongside Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Kathleen Parker. The program, scheduled to air weeknights at 8 p.m. ET, will focus on the most compelling and amusing stories of the day.
"Other cable news channels force-feed viewers one narrow, predictable point of view; in contrast, CNN will be offering a lively roundup of all the best ideas — presented by two of the most intelligent and outspoken figures in the country," said CNN president Jon Klein. "Eliot and Kathleen are beholden to no vested interest — in fact, quite the opposite: they are renowned for taking on the most powerful targets and most important causes."
Since leaving office, the 50-year-old attorney has been a guest on programs including The Colbert Report, Real Time with Bill Maher and The Rachel Maddow Show. He also filled in for Dylan Ratigan on MSNBC earlier this month.
