Larry King May Contribute to Jon Stewart's 'Daily Show'
A Comedy Central insider tells THR “the possibility has been discussed.”
After stepping down from his CNN show, Larry King may end up appearing on Jon Stewart's Daily Show, network insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter.
"The possibility has been discussed," the source says, adding that representatives for the Daily Show have had only one conversation with King.
Insiders stressed that it's very early in the process and there is always a possibility that talks could come to naught. King wouldn't be a regular correspondent like John Oliver or Samantha Bee. Rather he would be an occasional contributor much like Lewis Black, Larry Wilmore or John Hodgman.
The New York Post first reported King was in discussions with Comedy Central.
After King left Larry King Live in December, Stewart declared, "There's not enough Larry on TV."
King's comedy tour kicks off in April.
He will host the Peabody Awards in May.
