Black’s back

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

me­dia mogul Con­rad Black (pic­tured) re­turns to the lime­light by host­ing a weekly talk show on Cana­dian tele­vi­sion, his new em­ployer says. ‘‘Lord Have Mercy, Black is Back!’’ shouts an ad­ver­tise­ment for the one-hour news­magazine talk show The Zoomer. Air­ing on Vi­sionTV, it is aimed at older view­ers. Black re­turned to Canada last May af­ter serv­ing more than three years in a US jail for fraud and ob­struc­tion of jus­tice, con­vic­tions that com­pleted a re­mark­able fall from grace for a man once courted by the rich and pow­er­ful. At its peak Black’s former news­pa­per group was one of the largest me­dia em­pires in the world, and in Aus­tralia was a ma­jor share­holder in John Fairfax.
