In a stunning move, CNN has announced that former BBC 24 presenter and Apple Corps. technical guru Guy Goma will replace Larry King on 'Live', when the host is vanquished by the Halliwell sisters in fall, 2010.
Gonads, 41, who has a business degree from his native Republic of the Congo, rose from his position as a Data Support Cleanser for BBC to garner international kudos as BBC 24's in-house expert on Apple computers and Beatles recordings.
Gummo, who never applied for the position at CNN, was surprised when CNN executives called him for an interview.
"I am very surprised to see this opportunity to come on me, because I was not expecting that," said Gooble. "When I came, they told me something else and I am coming. 'You got an interview,' So a big surprise anyway."
Gumby will also drag 'Live' into the 21st century, as all Goopy-hosted shows will be available for download from www.formerCongoTaxiDriver.web, an opportunity Gumdrop is excited about.
"If you can go everywhere you're gonna see a lot of people downloading to the Internet and the website, and everything they want. But I think it is much better for the development and to inform people what they want and to get the easy way and so faster if they are looking for," said Coma, in what CNN refers to as 'Idi Amin English'. "You can go everywhere on the cyber cafe, and you can take, you can go easy. It is going to be an easy way for everyone to get something to the Internet."
CNN has also addressed concerns that Gumbo might not be the best broadcaster in the business, which could hurt ratings.
"I don't understand a f--king word he says," said CNN VP Turn Tedder. "But he's still a better broadcaster than Larry King."
