Larry Wilmore Announces New Podcast
You can’t keep a funny man down. Wilmore’s The Nightly Show was canceled by Comedy Central last year, but the veteran comedian’s just announced a new podcast for Bill Simmons’ Ringer network. Black on the Air will be a simpler operation: Wilmore, who also co-created HBO’s Insecure and is an executive producer of ABC’s Black-ish, will weigh in on the news and interview people from “politics, entertainment, culture, sports and beyond,” including Bernie Sanders and Neil deGrasse Tyson. The first episode, which drops today, features legendary TV producer Norman Lear.
