I’m not a huge fan of CNN because of their liberal slant to the news. However, they just struck a deal that should pay huge dividends. CNN announced they had signed Bob Costas to be King’s regular substitute host. (Hat tip: Hugh Hewitt)

Although many people think of Costas as just a sportscaster, he has a wide range of interests and an innate curiousity that makes him a fantastic interviewer. His show "Later with Bob Costas" which ran for six years on NBC was one of the best interview shows ever produced. CNN has scored a huge coup today by signing Costas. It looks like the suits at CNN have finally done something right for a change.
