NEW YORK (AP) — Current TV says it will launch a six-hour morning talk block next Monday.

Announced earlier this month, the morning slate will consist of live simulcasts of the radio programs “The Bill Press Show” and “The Stephanie Miller Show.”

The TV version of Press’ syndicated radio program will air weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Eastern time. The TV simulcast of Miller’s show will follow from 9 a.m. to noon Eastern time.

Press is a liberal commentator and a veteran of CNN’s “Crossfire” and “The Spin Room.” Miller is a liberal talk show host and comedian.

The left-leaning political TV network announced Tuesday that six top-of-the-hour news breaks beginning at 6 a.m. Eastern time will also start Monday.

These programs join Current’s prime-time lineup anchored by “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.”
