Larry King will return to TV with a political talk show beginning next month.

The new program, “Politics with Larry King,” will air on the RT America network, a global, English-language channel based in Russia, the network announced Wednesday. No premiere date or broadcast schedule was specified.

RT said it will also telecast “Larry King Now,” which debuted online on Hulu and Ora.TV last summer.

The programs will originate from Washington and Los Angeles. They will continue to stream on the Hulu and Ora.TV websites and will be available on rt.com. RT America will be the exclusive U.S. broadcaster for both.

“I have always been passionate about government and issues that impact the public,” said King, adding, “I appreciate the importance of providing a platform with real alternative visions for our country’s future.”

King, who turns 80 this year, hosted a weeknight talk show on CNN for 25 years before it ended in December 2010.

RT America is carried in the U.S. by cable providers including Time Warner, Cox Cable, Comcast and Verizon FiOS.

Never-before-seen photos of the Beatles by Ringo Starr will be included in his new book, titled “Photograph.”

An e-book will be published June 12 in conjunction with the upcoming Grammy Museum exhibit, “Ringo: Peace & Love,” in Los Angeles, Genesis Publications and Starr announced Wednesday. Select images from the book, which also includes unpublished images from his personal archive, will be displayed at the exhibit.

A limited-edition, hand-bound book signed by Starr will be available in December.

Starr’s photographs and stories “portray four lads from Liverpool, trying to live normal lives amidst the frenzy that surrounded them,” the statement said.

He previously published “Postcards From the Boys.”
