Channel Nine has reportedly signed former Labor leader Mark Latham as a panellist on a new late-night panel show.
The foul-mouthed Latham will be joined by former Liberal minister Amanda Vanstone, actress Pallavi Sharda, entrepreneur Tammy May and charity CEO Seb Robertson for the pilot episode to be filmed on 9 September, The Australian reported exclusively on Tuesday.
“Nine executives may be hoping to capitalise on his recent controversy,” media editor Sharri Markson wrote.
In early August, Latham quit his job as a columnist for the Australian Financial Review amid allegations he used a Twitter account to post derogatory messages about women.
After his resignation, the former politician went on an expletive ridden tirade during an interview at the Melbourne Writers Festival.
