It might seem eons ago that The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore was yanked off the air, but it was only less than a year ago, in the election year of all election years no less, that Wilmore’s run in replacing The Colbert Report came to an end.
Yet, Wilmore impression on the media landscape was too good to fade away for good. Bill Simmons’ Ringer podcast network has thus given Larry Wilmore a podcast where he’ll get to talk politics, entertainment, culture, sports, and beyond as well interview folks like Norman Lear, Bernie Sanders, and Neil deGrasse Tyson (i.e. kind of what he was doing at The Nightly Show).
Called “Black on the Air”, it gets released this Thursday, May 11th. Here’s Bill and Larry giving the official announcement.
