Former childhood actor Gary Coleman didn´t win California´s recall election, but he´ll still get a political platform on the new Hollywood-based All Comedy Radio network.
Coleman has been tapped to become the network´s political analyst and says his experience as a candidate will come in handy in this new assignment.
He finished eighth out of 135 candidates vying to replace Governor Davis in last week´s election, losing to fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
All Comedy Radio co-founder and chief executive officer Michael O´Shea says they´re “delighted to have a commentator with such keen insight and experience as Mr. Coleman.”
The All Comedy Radio network has been on the air for about a month and has more than a dozen affiliates nationwide. Coleman begins his on-air political commentaries Friday.
