Larry King will guest host ESPN2‘s late-night show “Olbermann” from Oct. 1 to 3, live from the studio’s New York City location.
He will also make a guest appearance on the program this Friday. The former CNN host’s political talk show, “Politicking with Larry King,” was recently picked up by RT, a network funded by the Russian government.
Host Keith Olbermann will take a temporary leave from his program beginning Sept. 30 to host TBS’s MLB post-season studio show. After King’s three-day stint, Jeremy Schaap, the host of ESPN Radio’s “The Sporting Life,” will guest host from Oct. 8 to 10, followed by Colin Cowherd, the host of ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd,” who will take over from Oct. 15 to 17. Olbermann will return to his regular gig on Oct. 21.
