Holy shit, Stombo is getting a show on CNN!
« on: Jun 09, 2013, 05:27 PM »
George Stroumboulopoulos has had a late night talk show here in Canada (and I have been mentioning him and have provided dozens of links of clips over the years, including his TPB interviews, and the pic of me with him when I met him) :)  Well anyway it seems he has caught the attention of CNN and will have a show there too.

Lately I've just been watching GST while I'm having a beer. He's a pretty good interviewer. Is he leaving CBC? I'd hate to see him go. The TV in my room doesn't get CNN.

As far as I know he is not leaving CBC.  He has a radio show on CBC radio as well, he is a busy guy!  I don't know if he will drop something or just work it into his schedule.  They only tape GST part of the year then they replay the shows.

Just found this, looks like he is not leaving CBC.

CNN has commissioned 10 installments.

Stroumboulopoulos was open to the idea, noting that he has summers off from his CBC interview program George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.

Awesome. GST is probably my favourite late night talk show.

Watched It. Pretty good. :D George seemed a little more subdued than usual. Maybe first show jitters.

He is a great interviewer, sometimes he catches the guests by surprise when they don't get the usual fluff and celebrity questions.

I hope he does well!

He does seem a bit more restrained on CNN. I hope the suits aren't smothering him too much .
