Conrad Black's talk show "The Zoomer" set to premier October 7

TORONTO - Conrad Black's weekly current affairs show will begin airing next month.
The show, titled "The Zoomer” Television for Boomers With Zip," was announced in May, but has yet to bring the former media executive into Canadian living rooms.
ZoomerMedia (TSXV:ZUM) now says the 60-minute talk show will begin airing on its Vision TV channel Oct. 7 at 9 p.m.
It will be co-hosted by former Citytv/MuchMusic journalist and CBC Radio executive Denise Donlon.
As part of each episode, Black will conduct a feature "Conversation With Conrad", or participate in a panel discussion with "some of the world's greats." He will also tackle a slew of issues in an editorial segment.
Black served 37 months of a 42-month sentence in a Florida prison after he was convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice related to actions taken while he was head of Hollinger International. He has since had two of the three fraud convictions overturned on appeal, settled a civil case with the U.S. Securities Commission, and won a large libel settlement over some of the allegations initially levelled against him.
