Current TV on Wednesday announced they’ve tapped comedian and TV personality John Fugelsang as the network’s newest primetime host. The show is still being developed and will premiere in the fall.
Fugelsang, as Current pointed out in its release, last made television waves as the man who got Mitt Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom to admit to the campaign’s “Etch-a-Sketch” strategy on CNN.
He’s the latest hire among several entertainment-focused personalities at Current, including Stephanie Miller and Joy Behar. The network’s other hosts, including Jennifer Granholm and Eliot Spitzer, are more traditional political commentators. What all the hosts have in common, though, is that they have “something to say,” said David Bohrman, president of Current TV.
