Current TV will add network contributor John Fugelsang to its growing roster of on-air talent, signing the comedian to host a primetime show this fall.
The announcement was made Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour during a live morning broadcast of the network's Talking Liberally: The Stephanie Miller Show. Fugelsang, who currently appears on Current as an on-air guest host and commentator, will tackle current political and cultural issues as part of his fall show, according to network officials.
"We at Current are eager to bring John's unique perspective on politics and the world around him to primetime," commented Current TV Chairman and former Vice President Al Gore in a statement. "He's been a part of the Current family for a while now and we see just how much his voice resonates with our audience. His new show will nicely complement our growing lineup."
