Sykes to host political forum on Logo

Posted on 20 Aug 2012 at 10:18am

The Republican National Convention starts next week, followed the following week by the Democratic National Convention, and you may be planning to get your coverage from ABC, CNN, MSNBC or NPR.

But Logo is getting into the game.

Out comedian Wanda Sykes will host two political panel shows — one following the DNC convention, one on election eve in November — for the (formerly-gaycentric) cable channel. NewNowNext Vote with Wanda Sykes will premiere on Sept. 10 at 9 p.m., and discuss issues of interest to gay voters, including same-sex marriage and Supreme Court appointments.

Of course, Logo held a candidates forum on LGBT issues in 2007, but this is, to my memory, its first serious foray into gay news and politics in five years. Good for them. Just, why did they do this only after renouncing their gay cred? Ah, well, we’ll take what we can get.
