For­mer Ma­jor League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling is join­ing the Bre­it­bart News Net­work as host of the con­ser­va­tive or­ga­ni­za­tion’s first on­line ra­dio show.

The for­mer Boston Red Sox World Se­ries hero, who has said he’s con­sid­er­ing a chal­lenge to Demo­cratic U.S. Sen. El­iz­a­beth Warren of Mas­sachusetts, will start his two-hour call-in show at 9 a.m. to­day.

Schilling called Bre­it­bart “the last bas­tion of ac­tual jour­nal­ism.”

Schilling starred for the Philadel­phia Phillies, Ari­zona Di­a­mond­backs and Red Sox. He played on three World Se­ries win­ners and re­tired in 2009.

Shaquille O’Neal buys into At­lanta Krispy Kreme fran­chise

Shaquille O’Neal may have a new ad­di­tion to his ev­er­grow­ing list of nick­names: “The Big Dough­nut.” Krispy Kreme Dough­nuts says that the basketball Hall of Famer is an owner of one of its down­town At­lanta fran­chises. The com­pany says O’Neal is an owner of the Krispy Kreme lo­ca­tion on Ponce de Leon Av­enue in the city.

O’Neal an­nounced the news by tweet­ing out the Krispy Kreme logo with the mes­sage, “Ur fa­vorite dough­nut just got even HOT­TER, baby.” Krispy Kreme is fa­mous for its neon “hot dough­nuts” sign an­nounc­ing fresh treats.

O’Neal was in­ducted into the Nai­smith Me­mo­rial Basketball Hall of Fame last month af­ter a ca­reer that spanned 19 sea­sons.
