Larry King warns us in this video clip on SportsNetLA.com that he’ll be launching his own “Larry King At Bat” interview show starting March 18, sure to lure more cable and dish operators beyond Time Warner Cable to sign up for the channel sooner, while King is still alive, rather than later.
In a Dodger press release noting that Kings is a season-seat holder, the former CNN talk-show giant made his pitch:
“I have been a Dodger fan all my life. I am happy to be a part of SportsNet LA, the new 24/7 Dodgers television network. With my love of sports and my interviewing skills, I think it will be a happy combo. I am looking forward to a great year!”
There may have been more to King’s statement, but sources say he nodded off after that quote, mumbling something about how Leo Durocher still owed him money.
