TORONTO - Conrad Black is set to return to the media landscape with a show premiering this fall on Vision TV.
Black's show, "The Zoomer," will be filmed in front of a live studio audience and be co-hosted by former Sony Music Canada president Denise Donlon.
As part of the show, Black will participate in panel interviews and provide his views on various issues, from the U.S. justice system, prison reform, religious persecution, and ageism, according to a news release.
Black, 69, once controlled the world's third-largest English-language newspaper empire, which included the National Post.
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 was released in May of 2012.
Since the initial judgment against him, Black has 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.
"The Zoomer" will air on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST starting Oct. 7.
Note to readers: This is a corrected story, a previous version indicated Donlon was the current Sony Music Canada president
