KIIS commentator and former MP gets TV show

Friday 20 July, 2018

Former Labor senator Sam Dastyari to host new Network Ten show. 

Sam Dastyari is set to host a new show on Network Ten covering political scandals.

The announcement was made on this morning's Kyle and Jackie O Show, on which Dastyari appears for regular segment 'Gutter Politics', and comes less than a year after the MP's own Senate career ended over questions regarding his links to China. 

Dastyari told Kyle and Jackie how he hit upon the name for the show. 'For about an hour before [I come on], Kyle keeps going 'disgraced senator', so we thought screw it, we're just going to call it 'disgrace.''

The program - 'Disgrace' - will be modelled on ABC's 'Gruen', featuring a panel of experts providing analysis on potical controversies. 

Dastyari quit federal parliament in January after revelations he told Chinese billionaire Huang Xiangmo his phone could be bugged during a meeting.
