GREAT IDEAS: Al Sharpton Starts Own Sunday Talk Show
The Rev. Al Sharpton has created his own media company and will launch a Sunday-morning syndicated TV show, he told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday.
The controversial civil rights advocate will unveil his 30-minute show, "Education Superhighway," Thursday morning at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's 40th Annual Legislative Conference. It's already cleared in 150 markets, including KCOP in Los Angeles.
That is a terrific name for a talk show about educating America's road-construction workers. And that is a subject all of America will want to watch a talk show about between Sunday morning episodes of Matlock. [THR]
